Emma Cocker is a writer-artist based in Sheffield and Reader in Fine Art at Nottingham Trent University. Operating under the title Not Yet There, her research enquiry focuses on the process of artistic endeavour, alongside models of (art) practice and subjectivity that resist the pressure of a single, stable position by remaining wilfully unresolved. Cocker’s work unfolds restlessly along the threshold between writing/art. Whilst embracing the potential of the essayistic (as a tentative effort or trial), her writing includes experimental, performative and collaborative approaches to producing texts parallel to and as art practice. Cocker's recent writing has been published in Failure, 2010; Stillness in a Mobile World, 2010; Drawing a Hypothesis: Figures of Thought, 2011; Hyperdrawing: Beyond the Lines of Contemporary Art, 2012; Reading/Feeling (Affect), 2013; On Not Knowing: How Artists Think, 2013; and as a solo collection entitled The Yes of the No, 2016. She is currently a key-researcher on the project Choreo-graphic Figures: Deviations from the Line, with the artistic research findings published as an accompanying artists' book/research compendium, 2017.

Publication: Revolve:R Edition II



Based on visual correspondence, Revolve:R is a collaboration exploring the exchange of ideas via physical and tactile forms of communication. The project results in the publication of limited-edition book-works, giclée prints, poetry and short films: resulting artworks are presented in print, online, and at events and exhibitions. Revolve:R extends beyond national, linguistic and disciplinary boundaries with a strong collaborative ethos which initiates and develops networks between local, national and international arts communities. The Revolve:R project is active in supporting early and mid-career artists through the publication, exhibitions and promotion of their work and practice.
