Researching into Printmaking 2.0 to negotiate new media and digital technologies within old print technologies such as etching,

Emily Godden & Audit Chaos created a multi-level installation of works in response to both the location and history of the Lookout, influenced by Virginia Woolf’s text A Room of One’s Own.


Using new digital technologies including virtual reality, Godden & Chaos researched into the notion of the melted matrix within printmaking, to develop works that situate the body between the print and the screen.


Working with the body as both a source of data and means of data capture, led to the creation of a Live Print using Woolf’s text to explore the connected post-human body.


Emily Godden is a recent graduate of The University of Suffolk and won the Aldeburgh Beach Lookout prize for a residency.


Emily's practice is currently focused around printmaking stretched into its broadest sense of existence to explore, document and translate both physically and naturally occurring traces through the medium of print. In recent work she has used sound as a mechanism to transmit data and communicate traces to exploit the essence of print in a

post-digital landscape.


Living in Ipswich, Emily Godden has exhibited work at Tate Modern, Tate Britain, Spike Island, Firstsite, The Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts and was recently shortlisted for the Batsford Prize for Fine Art.
