Emma Telford

Geometric line forms have influenced my work since visiting the ‘Adventures of the Black Square’ exhibition at the Whitechapel Gallery. I have been particularly interested in the intersection of line and the simplicity of its form.

This project has developed into the design of a contemporary domestic light. I have looked into ways to hang solid geometric shapes in an elegant and original way as well as providing sufficient shade to the light source. I wanted to create a hanging sculpture that was also a source of light for a modern interior. I like to work in a combination of different materials and this allows my work to continuously change and develop with each project I undertake. My artistic practice relies on experimentation with materials and the manipulation of forms and I am interested in creating sculptural and often conceptual objects.
