Emily Floyd (b. 1972, Melbourne) works in sculpture, printmaking and public installation. She explores the history of play, employing it as a frame for investigations into public philosophy, socially engaged design, typography and the legacies of modernism. Drawing parallels between educational models and contemporary art, Floyd’s works generate spaces for engagement and interaction.
