To introduce herself to the UCL East academic community, Emma produced a video in which she talks about her art practice and some of the artworks she has produced over the past 15 years, for internationally renowned public galleries.

Her practice focuses on answering these questions:

What can an artwork do?

How can a structure meant to be looked at make a viewer feel or think something?

How can it demand the viewer produces their own experience of it rather than submit to the vision of the artist?

How can the viewing of the structure remain a live event, one that is different each time you encounter the artwork?
