Emily Francisco is a Fil-Am sculptress utilizing disrupted signal flow, cheap consumer technologies, and discarded obsolete devices. Her work largely deals with fragmented time. Born in Honolulu, raised in Missouri's lead belt, educated in Saint Louis and the District of Columbia - her exhibition record includes IA&A at Hillyer, Rhizome DC, Transformer, Area 405, GlogauAIR Project Space, Vilnius Academy of Arts, The John F. Kennedy Center, and the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden. Her work has been reviewed in The Washington Post and Hyperallergic, and she has discussed her work at the Smithsonian Museum of American Art. Emily is currently based in Washington DC and maintains a studio at STABLE Arts, works as the AV administrator for a massive federal art institution to support her kid and their furry friends, is an adjunct at American University, and is preparing for a late Fall solo at VisArts and project residency at the Media Archeology Lab in Boulder, Colorado.

For her GlogauAIR digital residency, Emily developed a hotglue.me website for an “Archive of Fragmented Time”. The archive is a series of recordings involving DIY instruments that pull AM/FM radio frequencies from the air. Emily is in the process of loaning out these instruments to crowdsource recordings, and is currently looking for institutions that will be interested in acquiring the project and expanding the archive. The archive, in its earliest digital presence, can be found at https://fragmentedtime.hotglue.me/
