Emily Budd

With a background in bronze casting and paleontology, I am inspired by the application of a process and the passage of time as a means to transform. Through a practice of various casting techniques that mimic the alchemical fossilization of objects in time, I speculate on lost and changing environments and altered material realities. Revealing symmetries between the ancient past and speculative future, I create works that represent fictional artifacts, geologic formations and molten monuments.
