Exploring the enormous possibilities offered by new technologies, the work of Eugenia Emets (Poltava, Ukraine, 1979) is an experience for the senses. In her career she has evolved from photography to the use of innovative resources such as 3D animation or the projection of laser images that, in combination with a soundtrack, transport us to a new sensorial space. In 2010, Eugenia created the Analema group, which invites several professionals–including artists, researchers, programmers and sound engineers–to participate in different projects designed to produce a specific phenomenon based on visual, audio and spatial experience.
Her works defy preconceived manners of understanding time and space, causing the viewer to consider the possibilities of building other habits of perception.
Eugenia Emets studied Political Science at Moscow State Institute of International Relations (MGIMO), one of the most prestigious institutions of higher education in Russia. She graduated with honours from Central Saint Martin’s College of Art in London in 2008. The experimentation and quality of her works had already garnered an award in Russia in 2006, namely the New Generation Special Prize of the National Competition for Innovation in the Visual Arts. This award led to an art residency at the Oros Kharasson Contemporary Art Center on the island of Syros (Greece). She currently works in Moscow and London, studying at the British Academy of Sound Therapy. Her periods in Tibet and Buddhist philosophy have deeply influenced her work.
