BIO

Emily Walton is a multi-disciplinary artist. Often experimenting with vacuum packaging,latex and other skin-like materials, she explores the mistreating of animals, asking the question ‘What if it were us?’. Inspired by ‘PETA’ and other animal rights organisations, the artist investigates the way in which parts of the human body could be portrayed if the same treatment, which is applied to animals, was applied to humans.

Walton’s work aims to do this by recreating the packaging or ‘commercial branding’ of consumable products, using digital manipulation to then create subtle text changes to the labelling, packaging and branding.
