DIVINE ELECTRONICS...


Emmett Palaima is an artist working with electronics and esoteric processes of sound creation. His practice is conceptually rooted in the idea that technology and magic are one and the same, and that electricity is a manifestation of the divine or elemental forces underlying physical reality. In his work he seeks alternatively to celebrate the power of this force and give it worship, through the creation of devotional objects and intensely physical electronic experiences, and to analyze humanity’s relationship to this force in the context of a globalized industrial economy.

PAST WORKS...


His past work includes gallery exhibitions in New York, Texas, and Santa Fe, exhibition at Currents New Media Festival, work on immersive art installations with Meow Wolf Creative Studios and Dadalab, work on installation audio for the Whitney Biennial and the Palm Springs Art Museum, performance as a touring musician, and design of guitar pedals and synthesizers under the Hammerhead Audio moniker. His practice is a consolidation of these diverse influences, combining elements of functional and aesthetic design, sound, performance, and immersive space. He currently lives in Brooklyn, NY.
