Emma Critchley

Common Heritage

Emma has worked as an underwater visual artist for fourteen years. Through working with a combination of photography, film and audio-visual installation she explores the human relationship with the underwater environment. Emma is Royal College of Art alumni and has developed works funded by organisations including The National Media Museum, The Photographers Gallery, and British Council.

In June 2016 Emma was awarded a year-long residency called Culture & Climate Change, supported by Jerwood Arts, The University of Sheffield, The Open University and the Ashden Trust. Our support will go towards developing an ambitious work that has come out of the residency period, Common Heritage, working with producer Elena Hill. The work is a single-screen artist short film that is set around two critical frontiers, deep sea and space.
