Emma Matsuda is a multimedia artist who primarily works with photography and video. She utilises post production tools to manipulate and re-shape the everyday, often exploring the psychological implications and potentiality of colour. At times lushly indulgent, and at other times thought-provoking - she blurs the lines between reality and fiction, intention and happenstance. Most recently she has been experimenting with video and sound design; playing with the juxtaposition of “inaccurate foley” and moving image. 

In 2012 Emma graduated from Melbourne’s renowned VCA (Victorian College of the Arts) with a BFA degree in Photography, and since then has gone on to work in video production - producing, filming, and editing various music videos and short films, including camera operation on one feature (Under A Kaleidoscope, 2014), where she won Best Cinematography Award at Melbourne Underground Film Festival.

Emma’s work has been exhibited in various Melbourne galleries including Margaret Lawrence, DUDSPACE and Miss Libertine, along with photography and writing features in Ramona and The Travellist magazine.
