My research-based practice examines overlooked histories, historical texts and artworks as a platform to mobilize history as it relates to current political and social concerns.For example, I leverage Frederick Kieslers 1925 architectural manifesto to interrogate the housing crisis in Ireland.

Employing sculpture, video and photography I focus on opening new questions for the viewer to highlight present day urgencies. Giving prominence to language my methodology often uses the interview as a way to confront difficult legal or civic issues, e.g., using James Joyce’s Ulysses (1922) the ‘Pure Codology’ interviews address the anti-Semetism in Hungary through the local attitude to Bloomsday.
