Emily Lazerwitz launches a funding campaign at the Science Museum

Emily Lazerwitz launches a funding campaign at the Science Museum
Waiting for the Toad, Emily Lazerwitz.

After successfully funding two campaigns on art:i:curate, artist Emily Lazerwitz launches her third funding campaign at the ‘Greater Together’, an event sponsored by Accenture at the Science Museum.

 

The event celebrates the achievements of women in entrepreneurship, arts and technology, presenting a range of ambitious women who’ve launched their own start-ups, among whom the founder of art:i:curate, Irina Turcan. Speakers include Zahra Bahrololoumi, Accenture Fuels Retail Business Lead & UK Human Capital & Diversity Executive Sponsor, Arabel Bailey, Accenture Digital UKI Lead, Tilly Blythe, Information Age Gallery Curator, the Science Museum, and Renée Elliott, Founder of Planet Organic. 

 

As part of the event, art:i:curate artist Emily Lazerwitz launches her third funding campaign - Waiting for the Toad. The artwork is part of a series that reflects the design of a Hmong folk tale, working with digital means to weave traditional patterns. Her hand-made digital piece is an oxymoron that transcribes the way technology shapes the direction in which language develops. 

 

 

 

 

"The technology loses its sense of speed and effortlessness. It is clear how painstaking the process is. The slowness of the work is its protest. It is further heightened by the fact that the texts woven into the pattern are written in a language only computers can understand – binary. The language in the works becomes meaningless through the very translation that makes it so easily shared. To the human eye, it is simply an aesthetic object and a feat of patience, but when plugged into the computer it becomes a story: the very story that is hidden in plain sight.” Emily Lazerwitz

 

Emily Lazerwitz is a visual artist living and working in London. She holds a BA in Fine Art from Columbia University, New York (2014) and is currently pursuing a MA in Fine Art at Slade School of Fine Art. Lazerwitz is the recipient of the Promising Artist Award from Rhode Island School of Design (2010).

 

Her artworks were exhibited in solo and group shows including 'Passion for Freedom Festival', Mall Galleries (London, 2015); 'Journeys', Jewish Museum (London, 2015); 'BP Spotlight: Source - Pattern, Graphics, and Print', Tate Britain (London, 2014) and more. 

 

The campaign will run until the 6th of May. Pledge to Emily's artwork.
