Emily Hunt is an interdisciplinary artist with a background in textiles and art history. Raised by an architect and engineer outside of Boston she is inspired by how structures and systems are created and maintained. Her work strives to emphasize process over product and the value of labor. While in residency she is working on creating dialogue between found and made objects in controlled environments. These arrangements focus on visual hierarchy, contrasting materiality, and familiar forms to encourage the viewer to place their own meaning into the objects. Ideas of gender, craft, home, and memory inspire her. With an interest in historical preservation and collection care, Hunt draws from archival methods, materials, and histories to explore how and why we care for ourselves and the objects in our lives.
