Emma Matsuda is a Melbourne-born multimedia artist who works primarily with photography, video, and sound. They utilise post production tools to manipulate and re-shape the everyday, often exploring the psychological implications and potentiality of colour. At times lushly indulgent, and at other times thought-provoking - they blur the lines between reality and fiction, intention and happenstance. Since graduating with a BFA in Photography from Melbourne’s renowned Victorian College of the Arts in 2012, their practice has expanded from photography to a wider range of audiovisual mediums, often incorporating new technologies such as QR codes, geocaching, and other interactive technologies. In recent work they have been experimenting with digital algorithms and collaborating with artificial intelligence - exploring its' ability to interrupt human volition and create unexpected results in art.
Emma’s work has been exhibited in various Melbourne galleries including Margaret Lawrence Gallery, DUDSPACE and Miss Libertine, along with photography and writing features in Ramona and The Travellist magazine. In July-August of 2018 they were a resident artist of PICTURE BERLIN, where they participated in group exhibitions at tête project space and Gr_und gallery.
Emma currently lives and works in Berlin.
