Emily Francisco will discuss her work and new exhibition at the Cecille R. Hunt Gallery. Responding to fragments of information gathered by both chance and deliberate circumstances, Emily’s work utilizes a combination of sculpture, time-based media, and process documentatio

“I activate FM frequencies with a violin and an antique piano keyboard tuned to trigger systems of stations. These recontextualized objects function as access points to voices and songs competing to be heard. I am not interested in simply exploring noise. 
I am interested in creating magical moments. Sound invades the body, and everyday we encounter constant clusters of noises and industrial static. 
I am trying to understand the physical properties of sound. I am interested in disruptions—how they distort the way in which information is received and processed, while also highlighting events.”
