About Emma Cregan
I am an animator, video editor, and interactive media creator. I investigate the relationship between digital media and intangible cultural heritage. I studied animation, video, and sound art in Virginia Commonwealth University's (VCU) Kinetic Imaging program. While studying at VCU, I became drawn to stop-motion animation. I make my puppets using found objects and recycled materials, like string, scrap fabric, and cardboard. This adds a sense of past to the puppets, allowing me to show characters that have been shaped by their environment. My undergrad work shows a focus on mental health, family, and history. For the past two years I've been working for the Smithsonian Center for Folklife and Cultural Heritage and the Maa Trust. I've created short videos and written articles about the importance of culture and how traditional knowledge remains relevant in the 21st century.
