This project evolved after connecting with UK cyanotypist Catherine Orr online. The clarity and depth of her work, made with items collected from her local environment, made them inspiring source material for my experiments with electronic music and digital video processing. I see them as modern icons, ritual representations of nature streamed through the blue lens of the cyanotype.

BIG GOLD MOON
BIG GOLD MOON

A development from both my work on residency with the Royal Astronomical Society and with painter Hina Kahn. This work is based upon ideas of hidden symbolic structures being revealed within nature and cosmic phenomena. It uses 3D rendering of lunar textures and 3D motion design enhanced by a synchronised dialogue with electronic atmospheres and sound design.

This project explores ideas of liminality with reference to borders both within landscape & cultural identity. Hina is a visual artist of Pakistani heritage who came to Ireland as a refugee. Both David’s and Hina’s work has a history of addressing this theme, and when the two met while in residence at Uillinn they formed the basis of this project.

EPIC / HELIOS
EPIC / HELIOS

A series of video icons centred around a re-writing of aspects of Grecian mythology — Helios has been Banished from the mind of man through the erosion of nuance, the God of the Sun is destined to wander the dark recesses of the forest of the mind, hiding his light for fear of discovery.
