A field is whimsical enough without CCTV. Perceived ownership over a stolen land. Fear of the changing world. Unravelling myself in understanding the rural place I grew from. The impact we make on a space. And what are they trying to protect? It's also a photo of an empty field.
Emma Daisy is a photographer working on Whadjuk Noongar Boodja. She explores analogue and digital techniques to categorically store moments. She is autistic and lives with a chronic illness that causes memory loss and obsession with visual input. She photographs to process and remember. Emma has a background in music and produced and performed ambient music as Daisies Net with a combination of field recordings, cello, and voice.
She is a community radio presenter on RTRFM sometimes and a portrait photographer for musicians. Running through Emma Daisy's work is a presence of the natural world and humans interacting. Emma subtly explores notions of life force and the unexplainable.
