Julie Weber is a multidisciplinary visual artist, director and lecturer at NCAD and DCU. Her 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 work beyond the ‘normal’ bodily limits. Her intention is to mark out micro-evolutions in her immediate environment and document metamorphic moments - both mundane and monumental. The inclusion of time-based work manipulates the viewer's experience to contribute to a larger transmogrification. The process materialises through documentation, extensive play and instinctive responses to moments of exertion. These environments range from domestic spaces, natural environments to mechanical factories. Most recently (June 2021), in collaboration with Bob Gray and John Waid, Weber presented an image from a performance called 'Julie as a Pigeon with One Wing' on a billboard on Lennox Street in response to the area of Portobello. Using existential humour, she depicts the reality of a space enmeshed with her own speculative fiction. This is communicated through ceaseless compositions that have no finite beginning and end, directly correlating to our now, 24-hour worlds.
