Through her work, Elin Johnston investigates aspects of collective and individual corporeal presence, conditions of self and impact upon place, and makes visible resonances of embedded cultural, social, and industrial memory.

In these inter-related series, she employs Video and Experimental Moving Image, 2D Digital Imaging, and 3D Sculptural Assemblage to interpret and signify thematic perceptions, emotions, and concerns which, whether revealed or withheld, serve to shape and define individual or shared values and responses.
