Emma Anne Johnson is an interdisciplinary artist who creates art focusing on valuing a “glitch” – a sudden, usually temporary, irregularity or malfunction of equipment. Glitches, with their inherent imperfections and digital anomalies, offer them a unique lens through which to explore the intersection of technology, human experience, and aesthetics. They experiment with combining trash, technology, and traditional art forms, resulting in a diverse range of creations that include music, sounds, paintings, drawings, videos, sculptures, fashion, and installations.

Their creative process is a continual reflection of their personal experiences. Through their creations, Johnson aims to highlight and challenge the societal structures rooted in our organization of emotions, identity, and social dynamics. Their art encourages both themselves and viewers to confront their biases and preconceptions and to engage in critical reflection and discussion about the subconscious associations on what we value and why. Value a glitch, be a glitch, embrace the glitch.



During my time at the residency, I was able to practice my live performance to prepare for some shows I had coming up. Also, I was able to complete the synth and guitar tracking for 5 new songs! woo! I also spent a lot of time in my sketchbook drawing the beautiful fjords :)
