Summary: About Emily Campbell’s practice:
Through the use of photography my practice seeks to create a world that on the one hand is real and on the other – imaginary. Using digital imaging, I effectively ‘paint with photographs’. Each image is made up of many smaller photographs enabling me to create surreal and magical scenarios.
The work I create for Public Commissions seeks to create an uplifting yet calming environment. Often working with a creative writer in the community, I visualise the poetic texts created about the local area. Large surreal vistas are installed as light boxes or printed onto Perspex, allowing the visitor views of their locality possibly only before seen in their dreams.
Experience: I have many years experience working in the Public Realm. All my work starts with workshops in the community, which inspire the final artworks. Recent projects include, a series of light boxes for Fulbourn Hospital, Wolverhampton Kings High School and Edinburgh Sick Kids Hospital. Please email me for a full CV.

Art forms: Visual artist, community engagement and public arts
Summary: Public and community engagement forms a large part of my practice, and I enable a range of art activities that includes painting (from individual work to large scale murals), assemblage using found objects, collage, and photo-transfer. My public arts commissions are usually informed by a community engagement process, and as well as public and private commissions, I undertake school residencies tailored to meet the needs of the curriculum and/or project theme in hand. I have worked with children and adults of all ages and abilities, and in institutions as diverse as schools, colleges, residential homes, museums and prisons. Projects range from one day drop-in workshops at fetes and fairs, Creative Partnerships school projects, artist residencies, and major public arts commissions. I have a clean driving licence, enhanced disclosure CRB, and public liability cover.

‘Slim Your Bin’, a project to promote recycling in South Norfolk, encouraging hoteliers to re-use… After playing the didjeridoo in a wheelie bin, and covered from head to toe in recyclable objects, such as plastic spoons, wrappers, packaging, film cases etc, I then jumped out reciting a ‘recycling’ poem and then gave a demonstration/ workshop of how it is possible to create a work of Art re-using broken plates to make mosaics.
A world conservation project, ‘Hotstuff’ was developed, to make children aware aboutsustainable energy and recycling. The amount of energy we use in this country was measuredin footprints, which each child at Bowthorpe school in Norwich decorated with objects theymight have otherwise thrown away. They also made an object out of clay and had to place itinto a giant ball ‘world’ so they saw their piece being ‘recycled’. Music, story, movement and songs, were performed about the elements to finish.
Forest Stories at Poringland – Dressed up as the green woman, made a bender house from willow and bamboo, and told ‘green’ stories to young children.
