Em Cole

ABOUT

Em Cole is a multi-disciplinary artist whose work spans across photography, motion, set design and VR technologies. Em’s work is situated at the intersection of art and technology, pushing the boundaries of what ‘The Image’ means today, exploring critical viewpoints on human communication in a post-digital age. She is influenced by what she feels our over-stimulated and desensitised eyes are craving, her visual style combining sensory stimulation and a brazen sense of humour.

Em holds degrees in Material Design and Information Experience Design, having completed her MA at the RCA.

Recent clients include Instagram, Lotto, Puma, Interscope, Sony Music, Bompas & Parr, WAH Nails, I-D, Hunger and King Kong Magazine.
