Multidisciplinary Artist, Participatory and Community Arts, Artistic Research, AI/Computational Creativity
I am an Australian artist, researcher and educator based in Co Leitrim, Ireland. My participatory and collaborative artistic practice is concerned with the landscape and cultural context, geopsychology, communities and objects of place, and the archive. Drawing on theory from writers and theoreticians such as Clare Bishop, François Materasso, Hal Foster, Boris Groys, and James Bridle I combine disparate elements of participatory practice, community and collaboration, and digital. I am also very interested in power structures within the process of art making. My practice does not emphasise the artists as auteur, but rather a collaborator who works either as a facilitator with socially engaged groups or as a direct participant often collaborating with other artists.
