London-based creative studio Emulsion presents SUB-MERGE: a photographic examination of the relationship between mental health, art and technology. Based on topics such as art, nature and perceptions of reality, artists including Ed Atkins, Harley Weir, Cédric Kouamé and Elizaveta Porodina each contributed a print motif. This gives shoppers the chance to purchase a wonderful print (100 £ plus shipping & packaging) and do good at the same time because proceeds from sales go to the charity organization Mind.
“We invited image makers who use technology to explore the worlds merged in our sub-conscious,” says Nick Hadfield and Creative Director Mikey Opie O’Grady from Emulsion. “We hope it will open a broader dialogue around the relationship between technology, ‘reality’ and the mind… At this time of year, the sense of loneliness and isolation is more desperate and tangible than ever before.”
SUB-MERGE is a reaction to one of our generation’s biggest challenges – our relationship with technology. Using photography in its broadest sense, we aim to encourage innovative and creative uses of new technologies, alongside our “natural” states of being to promote healthy living and to expand consciousness. We are pleased to present the submissions of these 20+ artists for a limited-time print sale. After the sale finishes, we will be making a one-off donation with all profits made to mental health charity Mind.
The SUB-MERGE print sale runs until 14 December at submerge.emulsion.online. All prints are 12x16 inches and priced at £100 with 100 percent of proceeds donated to Mind. For more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
