About Emily Cross / What I'm Looking At

Hi! My name is Emily Cross and I am a podcaster, art-maker, musician and death doula. In all of my work, I strive to create an atmosphere of peace; though an edge of strangeness and unease always seems to nudge its way in.

As a highly sensitive and anxious person, I find it helpful to cultivate moments of calm in a variety of ways. When I am making my podcast What I'm Looking At, I am focused in on a single subject, which I talk about at length. This podcast was born out of my love of "the boring" ( Seinfeld is a favorite of mine: 'a show about nothing' ) though I truly believe that nothing is boring! WILA gives listeners the chance to listen in on a detailed visual description of an everyday object or environment, effectively soothing them into mellow hypnosis ( or so I have been told ).

When I am making visual art or music ( Cross Record, Loma), I am once again aiming to not only calm myself but to create an alternate world for others to step into. Although I would not always describe my efforts as the epitome of peace or relaxation, my hope is to give the viewer/listener space for inspiration, imagination and deep feeling. The same can be said for my work as a death doula, though my primary goal in assisting those at the end of life is to relieve burden and be a true advocate for my clients. I also offer a unique experience called the living funeral ceremony, which is an intense group exercise in confronting mortality intended to spur serious reflection on life priorities.

Your pledge would mean the world to me, as it would mean you are supporting my efforts to be a creative voice. Though I will not be offering fancy tiers and rewards, I will do my best to make being a patron special for you. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

All my love,
