Developed through Forced Collaboration* in early 2021, Emily produced a series of performance GIFs exploring a blue swimming noodle in response to a set of instructions shared from artist Bryony Hussey. The full extent of the collaboration can be found here.
Interested in body-object combinations, Emily continues to explore the performantive potential of the noodle and how that object performs with her, expanding out into elements of play, sculpture and choreography.
Looking outwards and gathering noodles, Emily is also in the process of working on a series of movement workshops using swimming noodles, with early workshop developments found below.
*Forced Collaboration is an online platform led by artist Georgia Gendall that matches artist’s practices anonymously and creates a space for cross-disciplinary collaborations through the process of making/following instructions to create artworks.
