I’m an artist, musician and designer currently studying an MA in UX/UI at Technological Univeristy Dublin. I have been inspired by Transition Design, an emerging design approach that aims to identify and design interventions that can mobilise transitions toward sustainable futures. I am currently following this approach in the context of urban biodiversity. If you would like more information or are interested in creating something together please get in touch.


In other news, I recently recorded and launched my debut duet album with my good friend Doireann Glackin. Check it out here!

Plantation


Following a history of deforestation, Ireland went under a considerable afforestation programme from 1949-88. While targets were met, an industrial approach was adopted. Monoculture plantations, often dominated by the non-indigenous Sitka Spruce were the result.
This project is concerned with humanities fraught relationship with the environment. Valued economically, the environment is viewed as an infinite supply of natural resources which can be exploited for consumption, progress and economic growth.

Our idea of nature as natural, non-human and untouched must be re-considered. This work sees humans as part of nature, who have dominated and controled it, with little consideraiton for the next generation.


This work was created during  ‘How To Flatten A Mountain’, a 10-day residency at the Cow House Studios, and was supported by PhotoIreland.
