Emily Haasch - Artist Interview Series - Electric Objects

Emily Haasch

San Francisco, CA

“Each piece in C-series presents a new composition with different elements, but together ask the same question: 'Can gentle reduction, contemplation, and stillness be as arresting on a digital device?' The answer is unknown, but the collection affirms that the progress is in the process.”

— Alex, Electric Objects

Can you tell us about your process?
Any last advice for the folks just starting out?

Talk to everyone and anyone. Help other artists out when they need it, even if you don't know them. Have a commitment to who you are — even if your boss, mother, colleague, or professor disagrees. It's not a regular day unless you fucked something up. Open a Roth IRA. Get the extra guac. Most importantly, be nice.
