Emily DiCarlo

Virtual Residency | March 2023

Emily DiCarlo is an artist, researcher, and writer whose interdisciplinary practice considers site, temporality and collaboration as the foundational principles for meaning-making. Evidenced through video, installation, text and performance, her work connects the infrastructure of time with the intimacy of duration. Since 2016, she has served as a council member for the International Society for the Study of Time, and recently contributed her chapter, “Transcending Temporal Variance: Time Specificity, Long Distance Performance and the Intersubjective Site” to the current volume of The Study of Time (Brill Publishing). She lives and works in Tkarón:to/Toronto, Canada.


Residency Project

Having explored the concept of frequency propagation through the lens of Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) in my past video work, I decided to delve deeper into its technical applications by completing an intensive “Amateur Radio Operation” course this past fall. For my virtual residency at DAÏMÔN, I will continue this research by exploring techniques like EME (Earth-Moon-Earth), and meteor scatter signal bouncing. I plan to work with local “ham” radio operators to experiment with radio astronomy, learn more about satellite communication and listen to planetary radio emissions, such as Jupiter.
