Dissolution is a work that was created in response to recent resurgence in property development in Dublin and how this activity was impacting on artists as well as the general public. 50% of artist’s studios in the city had been forced to close over the previous year creating a studio crisis in the midst of a far larger national homelessness crisis.
A sculptural light installation, Dissolution was named after the second transformative stage of the alchemical process. Images were projected into the mouth of a cement mixer that contained a mirrored surface. This surface broke the images down and distorted them, reflecting them out of the cement mixer onto the wall in front of it creating an ever-changing projection.
Dissolution was exhibited as part of Glitch in Rua Red (2016)
