Using moving image, sound, text, sculpture and performance, my work examines the concept of ontology and the possible new subjects created through our relentless rhythmic behaviours. There is evidence that we have created an existence that can now work beyond the ‘normal’ bodily limits that we were designed to live. My intention is to mark out micro-evolutions in my immediate environment and document metamorphic moments – both mundane and monumental. The inclusion of repetitive sound compositions and moving image manipulates the viewers experience to contribute to a larger transmogrify as time passes in a space.
The process materialises through examination, documentation, extensive play and instinctive responses to moments of exertion. These environments have ranged from domestic spaces to mechanical factories.
Using existential humour, I depict the reality of a space enmeshed with my own speculative fiction. I communicate this world through ceaseless compositions that have no finite beginning and end directly correlating to our now, 24-hour worlds.
2021 Upcoming show at Spacecraft Studios Limerick, alongside artist Hannah Bloom Teskey
