Exigere Ecologies

Installation
(2013)

Collaborator (Visual Artist): Alan Boardman

Exigere Ecologies sees the use of oil and gloss paints, resin and aluminium, together with site-specific artwork and audio-visual media. The result forms a multi-disciplinary installation commissioned for the Weaponising Speculation exhibition in accompaniment to the conference of the same name organised by D.U.S.T (Dublin Unit for Speculative Thought).

Completing a thematic trilogy of research-based collaborations, Exigere Ecologies incorporates three iterations around the processes and materialities of non-representational painting. The flows of matter-energy manifest painting as a fossil of sensation from solid to liquid to sonic.

 

Mahal Kita Buí Toin

Installation
(2011)

Collaborator (Visual Artist): Alan Boardman

The second work in a series of research-led collaborations. Mahal Kita Buí Toin mimics Boardman's process/technique, producing slow morphing images as video layers emerge and disappear. Audio accompaniment follows the same principals – minute changes over time.

Interactive Installation

Collaborator (Visual Artist): Alan Boardman

Video analysis produces unique sonic results as colour is analysed and assigned synthesised sound. Using a large collection of footage, video playback is controlled by the user or randomly generated.  RGB content, hot/cold colours, contrast, and video frame difference, work to create a transcoded soundtrack in realtime.
