Emilie Crespo Slater is a scholar and multimedia artist originally from Philadelphia. She received her master's degree in Labor Relations from the University of Massachusetts and in 2017 was an ethnographic research scholar at the University of San Martin in Buenos Aires, Argentina. She holds a BA from Bennington College in Anthropology and is currently an MFA student with Bard College.
Her artistic practice sits at the intersection of academic scholarship and experimental art pulling each to create new forms in visual ethnography. Projects include a range of mediums including 35mm, 16mm, 8mm, super 8, VHS and DSLR often shown in installation formats. Within these parameters, she is probing relationships between connection, separation, similarity, difference, self and other.
