Member's bio: Kenneth Emig
Kenneth Emig a trans-disciplinary artist who integrates sound, sculpture, optics, dance and technology within his artistic practice. He encourages his audience to be sensorially observant and curious about the world around them.
His work is often called sculpture, but Emig see's it as sculptural in only the most generic, spatial sense.
"I approach my dance performance, light work, installations or physical pieces built from found technology from a position of physicality—how we as physical beings relate to the space around us and the objects within it—that changes and challenges our experiences of our surroundings as we move among them."
Emig's work is an exploration of the intersections and amalgamations of body, space, motion, light, technology, and sound.
He has completed a public art commission for the City of Ottawa (2004), a solo exhibition at the gallery AxeNeo7 in Gatineau, Quebec (2007), a solo dance commission for the 2008 Canada Dance Festival at the National Arts Centre in Ottawa, and exhibited in the 4th Moscow Biennale (2011) and at Quartair in Den Haag, Netherlands (2013).
He is currently Designer in Residence and Research Associate with the Experiential Design and Gaming Environments Laboratory at Ryerson University in Toronto and is participating in several group exhibitions and performances in Canada in the fall of 2013.
