This work from the early 2000’s highlights concerns the artist was working with at that time: around perception and interpretation, of deciphering and the process of understanding.

Darkroom is a flipbook animating a dialating pupil.

Emily Artinian studied Russian Literature at Columbia and Yale, then artists books at Camberwell in the UK after a letterpress apprenticeship with Peter Kruty Editions in NYC. She lives and works in London, Chicago, and in Wilmington, Delaware, and runs Street Road, an exhibition space in a real estate office in rural Pennsylvania ( In 2004 Artinian was artist in residence at the Armenian Center for Contemporary and Experimental Art in Yerevan, and worked with the writers’ group Bnagir. In 2009, her work Dead Dad was included in the Venice Biennale. Recent work has included the project, about Occupy Wall Street. Other current focal points are: real estate as art, detritus, ownership, money, and messing with distinctions between artist, subject, audience, and convener as much as possible.
