Interactive Public Art piece- 3 day workshop

The public were invited to participate and engage in a workshop that consisted of 28 interchangable canvas boards and footprint cards. These word cards where used to prompt the participants into creating an image or mark that related to some aspect of their life, memory thought process which took place in a set time frame. The canvases provided were then stacked into various forms. This created a collaborative art installation that was ephemeral. After the final canvas was added it was photographed  and work was then erased for the process started again over the eight hour day of 3 days.

May- July 2019 Ethnic Recipe Cafe 

The ethic recipe café is using food as a way to activate a space, create conversations, and nurture. There’s a lot of interest in the idea of the food itself being an artwork, As an Artist I am interested in the artwork but I also love to cook, eat, share, create and make food for social purposes. It’s this activity, the process of doing things and the communality that interests me, the food embodies social values. The ethnic recipe café aims to facilitate knowledge sharing, experimenting with innovative sustainable practices, to communicate, think, work, live, and share together. Recipe books & Cook books are remarkably social texts, broadly and closely reflective of big ideas and standards of practice within private and yet Performative spaces.

Sept 2018 An introduction to Body Movement Global Green EP Stradbally Co. Laois

Body Movement workshop – 2 days

The public was invited to participate in serious of movements and collaborations by embodying who we are through slow movements and slow collaborations. When we perceive someone else’s movements in space and the trace forms they create, the information that our visual sense transmits resonates throughout our bodies. Supported by our senses and reflexes, we move and act inadvertently; we are guided by a tacit knowledge. This workshop reflected on the participant’s movement experiences, informing the participant to be aware of and to comprehend the nature of bodily knowledge.

Jan - April 2018 Creative Transition 3 Month Artist Residency Scariff Community College Co. Clare

Creative Transition explored the altered aesthetic of the lived experience through community engagement in Post Primary Schools. Participants connected through aesthetics which evolved as an agent for transformative change through a collective consciousness. ​ Participants were directly involved in the creative process, the learning experience of every group was different. Although the framework was not completely fixed in terms of its structure or theme, the theme we focused on was our environment which was a collective project examining our environment through the transformation of recycled books which largely grounded the aesthetics of the project? As a collaborative art project, the project took the form of a process based exhibition stemming from a twelve week artist in residence programme.
