Emily Budd uses geologic forms and fictional artifacts to examine human perception and impact within the realm of deep time. By seeking out symmetries between the ancient past and the speculative future, her work explores the potential evidence of our present-day experiences in a fossil record. With a background in foundry work and lost-wax bronze casting, she uses mold-making and multiple casting techniques to mimic the alchemical fossilization of objects in time. Documenting the fleeting, forgotten and overlooked, she will create a future archive of altered items excavated from the living archaeological and geological site that is Recology.
Emily is a graduate student at California College of the Arts.
