At the heart of all my work is the idea of interaction; the work is the start of a conversation between the work itself and the viewer. When those two thing things interact, when the work reaches across the space to land on someone it resonates with, only then does it become complete. This work visualises the moment Emmet's beautiful compositions traverse that void between the music and the listener, creating imagined structures — from the notes and the space between the notes — punctuating the dark for a fleeting moment, yet leaving the space — and the listener — altered.
