Ahead of her interview with Platform, Emma Kohlmann made the trip to New York City (where she grew up) before returning to her current home in Western Massachusetts on a rainy autumn afternoon. As thoughtful as her fluid, amorphous works, Kohlmann spoke with Platform about her decision to relocate to a more rural setting, making community through the use of digital technology and the beauty of skating on wild ice.

“I felt like I had to have a lineage of where this [work] came from and why I was making it, and that really, I think, hurt my creative process in a way… I want people to feel accepted by the work and not feel like it’s not for them. It’s for everyone. I want this inclusive feeling when you look at it.” – Emma Kohlmann
