Emma Matsuda is a multimedia artist who primarily works with photography and video. She utilizes post production tools to manipulate and re-shape the everyday, often exploring the psychological implications and potentiality of color. At times lushly indulgent, and at other times thought-provoking - she blurs the lines between reality and fiction, intention and happenstance. Most recently she has been experimenting with video and sound design; playing with the juxtaposition of ‘inaccurate foley’ and moving image.
In 2012, Emma graduated from Melbourne’s Victorian College of the Arts with a BFA in Photography, and since then has gone on to work in video production — producing /filming /editing various music videos and short films, including working on one feature (Under A Kaleidoscope, 2014), where she won Best Cinematography Award at Melbourne Underground Film Festival.
Emma’s work has been exhibited in various Melbourne galleries includingMargaret Lawrence, DUDSPACE and Miss Libertine, along with photography/ writing features in Ramona and The Travellist magazine.
