Emma Bush

Emma Bush works in the field of art and ecology through performance, site-specific walks, writing and workshops. Her practice maps processes of sensory exchange between ourselves and others, including places, species, systems and elements. Fields, Village Walk, and City Walk emphasised careful placement of attention, listening, co-species interdependence and playful reverence. Emma is currently making PhD research into memory shared across bodies, times and places and is a Lecturer in Fine Art at Plymouth University. Emma’s practice makes spaces for interdisciplinary dialogue through a series of research gatherings; ‘warm up’ explores embodied approaches for attending to internal and external landscapes. Using various modes of listening and attention the practice aims to generate spaciousness in form and process opening spaces for rest, repair, and recovery. Recently Emma has been making; ‘Night Walk,’ exploring how we use our bodies as tools for sensory navigation. Emma is currently an Associate Artist at Coombe Farm, a rural retreat centre in Dittisham, Devon and Research Associate with RANE (Research in Art, Nature and Environment.)
