Edward Paul Quist was born in 1976 in Brooklyn New York. A director, writer, producer, composer, sound designer, photographer and documentarian, lives and works in New York City under the name embryoroom.
The emergent themes from Edward Paul Quist / embryoroom's work include the exploration of electronic and biomorphic imagery, experimental narrative and sound design. He employs a radical use of Cinéma vérité, which is frequently simultaneously nightmarish and seductively beautiful. Meeting at the intersection of the subconscious and so called reality, Quist's work is unclassifiable and stripped of the conventions of genre. His unorthodox use of intensive mesmerizing visuals through motion graphic manipulation is a continuous and evolving work.
He has exhibited and performed globally including:
Ikon Gallery (Birmingham), Kunsthalle Wien (Vienna), Sónar Festival (Barcelona), Avanto Festival (Helsinki), Buenos Aires International Independent Film Festival, Dissonanze festival (Rome), Tampere Film Festival, MoMA PS1 (New York), The Milan Film Festival, Kiasma Museum of Contemporary Art (Helsinki), Green Box Gallery (Turin), Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art, La Casa Encendida (Madrid), Museum of Science and Technology Leonardo da Vinci (Milan), Cine Cosmos (Buenos Aires), Museo del Fumetto di Milano, Parco Sempione / Castello Sforzesco (Milan), The Envoy Gallery (New York), The Eventi (New York), The Gershwin Hotel (New York), Tufts University (Boston), Iknost (Malmö), Macie Grasion Arts Club as well as venues such as Tonic (New York), Monkey Town (New York) and select small dj clubs.
