Emily Godden & Audit Chaos

Swans on Heroin

Swans on Heroin is a body of work created whilst on residency at Letheringham Lodge working with print, live streaming and drawing. With an interest in Deleuze’s theory of the Rhizome all of the work in the show utilizes natural data from the landscape of Letheringham Lodge. On 27 January 2016, a live stream of the live print in progress of Swans on Heroin was broadcast here.

Emily Godden’s practice is currently focused around printmaking stretched into its broadest sense of existence to explore, document and translate both physically and naturally occurring traces through the medium of print.

In recent work she has used sound as a mechanism to transmit data and communicate traces to exploit the essence of print in a post-digital landscape.

Life is absurd, and sometimes so is my work - let’s go on with our conversation.
