Covid Videos

Building from the previous research module, in the final module of the year I made 3 short videos. Once again this very much looks and processes the COVID times that we were starting to emerge from.
As part of this module I made another soft crocheted sculpture.


Research Module 2

In this module I start using crochet and textiles to make soft sculptures and graphs. This is the start of a project that looks and deals with COVID 19 very directly.
This is the first self directed modules of the course.
The crochet Blanket shows a graph of the COVID 19 vaccine uptake rate in Ireland. The yellow creatures are personifications of the many variants of COVID 19.

Printmaking Module

There were two explorations in printmaking for me- the first was an overlap between print and video. This looked at the idea of making, and unmaking. It’s also the first use of video/animation in a fine art context during these studies.
The second exploration develops the embossing I use in the the first part of the module and incorporates colour.

Painting Module

For this module I started with the some of the images I had gathered in the photography module.
Digital Cameras do not create a record of light present at a time, but rather a set of instructions to recreate what was detected by the digital sensor as pixels for a screen. With the opening and closing of the Digital Image, it changes.
Similarly when remembering a memory, the Memory is not the recollection of the time itself, but rather the last time you recalled the the Memory. In each recollection it changes.
This body of work exists as a record of intersecting thoughts, the paintings build from this relationship between digital imaging, and memory. An overlap between a physical place, and psychological one.
