Craftswoman and carpenter, Emma Alamo creates interactive installations that are at the intersection of theater and kinetic sculpture. Much of her work uses a carnivalesque aesthetic to excite imagination, explore social dynamics, and question the ways people respond to their environments. Her whimsical installations suspend disbelief creating multi-sensory worlds, often employing spinning floors, trapdoors, and analog technologies.

Originally from Tallahassee, FL, she moved to Baltimore in 2006, where she completed a B.F.A. in interdisciplinary sculpture at MICA. She is currently working from Chicago, IL and Minneapolis, MN.

Her work has been commissioned by The Baltimore Annex Theatre, City Paper, Dan Deacon, Artscape, The Soap Factory, Bedlam Theater, and Screen Door.
