Emily DiCarlo is an interdisciplinary artist living in Tkaronto / Toronto. Her research-based practice focuses on temporality as the subject, medium, and method to articulate aspects of the human condition and reclaim time in chrono-political acts. Through a romantic conceptualist lens, her pseudo-scientific methodology employs video, installation, performance and text to create often collaborative, site-specific projects.
