Emma has worked as an underwater image-maker for over nine years and has recently graduated with an MA from the Royal College of Art.

In this talk she will discuss her practice, which draws on the expereince of being immersed underwater as a way of exploring notions of being. Through a combination of still and moving imagery, Emma’s work examines a space that is detached from the everyday where the basic human structure of being changes.

Her work ivestigates the way the senses shift, which necessitates both a physical and mental realignment. The focus is on the body as it becomes suspended in a threshold state between in-breath and out, internal and external, conscious and subconscious; held within a fragile, transitory temporarily sustained only by the breath.
