“Emma Reid is altogether more intimate, with tiny spy-holes in a box, which replay various things including the image of nearby feet. One of her spy-holes is also set, inconspicuously, into the floor of the next gallery.” Duncan MacMillan, The Scotsman, Arts review: RSA New Contemporaries, Edinburgh, April 18th 2013
