Emily Beckmann is an artist and final-year postgraduate student of M.A. Film Studies at The University of Malta. Her interests include A.I., Behavioural Psychology, Cognitive Science and Neurodiversity.
On The Trail Emily will be screening a film of her work and influences, and sharing her creative process.
Emily’s new film, THE OBSIDIAN, has been made in collaboration with Scottish artist and professional software developer, Alex Hunsley. This short experimental film about time and space is based on Emily’s collage-making process, and focuses on the interaction between visual and gestural communication, resulting in the creation of disrupted surfaces. The viewer’s gaze is drawn perpetually around the screen, while illusions of depth are presented and intermittently disrupted.
Emily’s participation in The Trail is kindly supported by Maltese audio-visual events company, Power House.
