This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Known for stop-action film and video works, Elizabeth King creates puppet-like figures from figure fragments in a manner that makes them appear to move on their own volition.  Her work walks a line between fiction and fact, and her pieces appear to have human personalities.

King is a professor of sculpture at Virginia commonwealth University and has been creating puppets for over 25 years in her own image and that of her mother and grandmother.  The figures are smaller than life size.
