THE JAMES CASTLE HOUSE MAY 18 - JULY 27
Emily Culver is an artist and educator originally from rural Pennsylvania. She creates multimedia objects that reference existing systems and tools to question their perceived purpose, and our relationship to them.
01 AFFORDANCES: Two tool-like objects create an intimate moment when hung in a bathroom stall.
02 FLAILS: The smooth forms, materials and finishes of these works beckon to be touched.
03 WHAT SHE SAW WHEN SHE WALKED IN: The surface shown here was made by the artist; each tile was individually enameled and arranged before assembly.
04 TROUGH SHROUDED: This ten foot long table-like sculpture was created using Computer Aided Design (CAD) and Computer Numerical Control (CNC) milling.
05 PLUG: Copper sheet was formed and fabricated by hand to create this hollow object resembling a plug.
06 LABOR OF SUGGESTION: An immersive installation that obscures situations where objects of desire are within view, but out of reach.
