Emily Budd

With a background in bronze casting and paleontology, I am inspired by the application of a process and the passage of time as a means to transform. In my practice I examine the human experience within the realm of deep time, exploring the grander temporal potential of daily rituals through fossilization. I create fictional artifacts that exist at the intersections of craft, ecology, science fiction, queerness, time scale and human sustainability when facing imminent change.
