My practice has included photography, video, performance, printmaking and sound.
I began experimenting with photographic processes whilst at college, making panoramic and pinhole cameras, as well as video, performance, sculpture and sound works.
I have continued working in sound and perform at events, frequently with Katie O'Looney, Robin Parmar, The Quiet Club, Paul Hegarty, Tony Langlois, Anthony Kelly and David Stalling. I am an active Board and Arts Committee member of Sirius Arts Centre, Cobh and a member of Irish Sound, Science and Technology Association (ISSTA). My practice is currently divided between soundworks and pinhole photography.
Pinhole: Using the long exposure and wide angle format qualities of the cameras I make and adapt. I engage in projects, usually between one or two years in duration.
Sound: Live performances with self made instruments and produce work using my instruemnts and field recordings. I am a member of SUNFISH with Tony Langlois. My individual and collaborative work has been included on CD's curated by Sonic Vigil, Dublin Electronic Arts Festival and Art Trail. SUNFISH with MaSee Sound-a DVD of films accompanied by sound to be released by The Guest House, Cork. I explore using sound as a stand alone media, as well as in association with other pracices, theatre and visual arts. Education:
