Emma  Baiada

Emma Baiada makes films from life. Inspired by the traditions of observational documentary, her work relies on simple uses of video and audio to witness deep ways of being. She creates from a belief in the divine mundane, and, through an approach unconcerned with narrative convention, she aims to produce an atmosphere that exists somewhere between reality and dreams. Central to her process is a period of prolonged immersion, enabling her to form reciprocal relationships that engender true reverence and embodied understanding. She currently lives in community in Columbia County, New York where she enjoys jumping on the trampoline and collecting rocks in the woods.
