The edge of Emily's desk

Kreider, Kristen and O'Leary, James (2010) The edge of Emily's desk. [Art/Design Item]

Type of Research: Art/Design Item
Creators: Kreider, Kristen and O'Leary, James

The Edge of Emily's Desk is a video work shot on location at Emily Dickinson’s family home (The Homestead) in Amherst, Massachusetts, by permission of the Emily Dickinson Museum. Filming took place in Dickinson’s bedroom where the poet’s 17 inch writing table sits in the southwest corner of the room. The work, presented as a four-screen installation, becomes an exploration in scale, colour and detail. Close, careful observation is coupled with patient surprise to evoke - through durational medium of video and the spatial configuration of the four screens - the writing space of the poet as much as the focused attention demanded by a reception of Dickinson’s work.
