Working in Digital Media – Week 5

Hey guys,

This weeks guest speaker was Emma Wade. Emma is an artist mainly in dublin but tours around the country sometimes.To be exact Emma is a visual artist. Emma mainly works on new ideas for art which are brilliant. Emma graduated fromthe institute of art and design in Dun Laoghire, when she graduated she worked in a design company for 2 years. After this emma moved to dublin. Then in 2005 she went to the irish museum of modern art and it was then that she decided she wanted to be an artist.

One year later Emma had created a Mat which when stepped on let out a loud cheer to lifen a persons day up. Emmas inspiration for this idea actually came randomly , because she lived near a stadium and one morning when she woke up she heard the noise of a crowd cheering and thought to herself wouldnt it be nice to wake up to that every morning. And the outcome was this :

A little lift

The device worked by a pressure pad on the ground under a mat with speakers on either side. When pressure was put on the map a loud cheer would come from the speakers. I personally think this is a great idea and would love to see it around sometime. Be great if it was at the door to a shop .

After this Emma came up with a new idea called Rexotrek, which was a project that let people see the world form a dogs point of view.

If you would like to check this project out for yourself then here is a link to the website: http://www.rexotrek.com/


To actually see the project people had to get on there hands and knees to get inside which brought people to Dog’s height. Once inside the saw a video being projected onto the wall.  The video was a point of view for a dog out at the beach. Emma made this video by getting her parents Dog and attaching the video camera to its collar and bringing the dog to a beach , the Dog was called rex and thats where the project got its name from.

Emma then done a 3 month unpaid internship in New york where she learned Photoshop and Sound Engineering Skills. When she finished the 3 months she returned to dublin where she started work in Space Studios.

Then Emma produced a number of Exhibitions to date , But my personal favourite is H.U.G.S which stands for        Human Utopian Generation System.
