An Artist Talk with Emily Webster at NYU IDM, April 22nd

Posted April 18, 2019

As a a part of New York University’s Integrated Digital Media Speaker Series, our head of Media Environments, Emily Webster, will be giving a lecture sharing her path from architecture school and designing water features to her work at ESI Design.

In her role as Head of Media Environments, Emily develops innovative designs that integrate new technologies for the advancement of the highly specialized field of media environments. Emily is also a Lead Designer and Audio Visual Technologist across various projects, leading multi-disciplinary teams to create innovative experiential designs. Her notable projects at ESI include eBay Main Street, The Statue of Liberty Museum, and The Beacon at PNC Tower.

Emily is extremely hands-on. She explores applications for weaving technology into the built environment through experimentation in ESI’s lab-like setting but is equally as comfortable in strategy sessions as she is with commercial-grade hardware or with a table saw.

Emily applies her formal education in architecture and training as a dancer to thinking about how people move through space, using this as the foundation for all of her work. She earned a B.Arch. from the University of Colorado and a Master’s from NYU’s Interactive Telecommunications Program. Before joining ESI Design, she worked for WET Design, photographer David LaChapelle, the Independent Film Channel, and artist Jim Campbell.
