Living well with ourselves, our places, and others ~ human and more than human~ drives my practice. Working within the Symbiocene narrative, studio explorations are informed by ecological concerns, engaging with symbiosis, interconnectedness, and mutualism #symbiocene. A multidisciplinary artist with an ever-evolving aesthetic, visual output reflects upon bio and lithic connections, synergies and symbiosls.
Current lines of investigation include biodiversity, extinctions, the communication and symbiotic systems of fungi, trees and other beings, dust and the body as microbiome ~ intriguingly, 97 percent of our human and non-humans bodies consist of the same elements as stardust. Haptics ~ materiality and sounds also feature, while I have experimented with olfactory stimulation, an aspect to expand upon. In addition to my studio practice based in Laois, collaborations are an indispensable part of the process, whether with beekeepers or advanced photonics experts, working with professionals from diverse fields sparks creativity and invariably drives the research down unexpected paths.
While drawing is invariably where every idea takes form, screen based works including holography, photography, and video are important aspects, created using Adobe CC and Maya. Works are realised in a variety of media including photography, video, hologram, sculpture, and installation. Pre-used, found, repurposed, and recycled matter are invariably present as I avoid using brand-new raw materials unless they are renewable and earth friendly.
Influences include The Harrisons, Mackey, Haraway, Simard, Carson, Morton and Albrecht.
