Emma Charles

MA work

Working with both photography and moving image, my work explores the dialogue between the city and the implication of global contact. Notions of time, productivity and that which is concealed in the city and recurring themes within my practice.

Recent film work Fragments On Machines makes visible the physical framework and materiality of the internet, a vast network often thought and spoken about solely in abstract terms. Taking New York City as the central focus, the film observes the evolution of architecture in the city to accommodate the material nodes and connectors that comprise the physical manifestation of the ‘virtual’ world.
