Despite the seemingly obstructive title, Emily Peasgood shows she is a risk-taking creative who throws caution to the wind (sometimes literally), experimenting with sound and social encounters, her work is original, thought-provoking and uplifting.

She admires those who seem to know exactly what they want to do with their lives, but is more than content to flit about with a glorious lack of discipline across an array of broad interests.
