Emily Francisco

Utilizing disrupted signal flow, cheap consumer technologies, and discarded obsolete devices, Emily's work largely deals with fragmented time. Collecting existing objects and processing the physical and metaphorical weight those objects carry, this work pieces together disparate elements in an attempt to make things whole. This results in objects and environments that require activation; work that is incomplete until the viewer is present and engaging in the moment.

Emily was born in Honolulu, raised in Missouri's lead belt, educated in Saint Louis and the District of Columbia. Her exhibition record includes IA&A at Hillyer, VisArts,  Rhizome DC, Transformer, Area 405, GlogauAIR Project Space, Vilnius Academy of Arts, The John F. Kennedy Center, and the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden. Her work has been reviewed in Hackaday,  The Washington Post, and Hyperallergic, and she has discussed her work at the Smithsonian Museum of American Art. Emily is currently based in Washington DC, maintains a studio at STABLE Arts, is a solo parent, works as the audiovisual program analyst for a massive federal art institution, and teaches expanded media as an adjunct professorial lecturer at American University.
