Population Cartograms

March 17, 2015

These really give a different perspective on the world! I find it interesting how some countries are overwhelmingly focused on one city, but the populations of others, like Italy and Germany, are more uniformly distributed, to the point that the cartogram doesn’t look that different from the physical map. Could it be, that Germany’s history as a collection of independent states has been the main influence on its current population distribution?

Look here and compare countries! Simply click on a country on the physical map to see the cartogram.

Exhibition in Fishbowl Gallery, Exchange Dublin

March 8, 2011

Between the 7th and 14th March 2011 I showed some sculptural work in Exchange Dublin’s Fishbowl Gallery.

It’was a solo exhibition of new art work in this Temple Bar youth arts centre. The work reflected my feelings about the horrifying mix of circus shows and insurmountable economic problems that now characterise Irish politics.

International Mother F*ckers!

November 28, 2010

On Thursday 25th November 2010 I organised a workshop in NCAD to bring artists together to make creative and funny placards to hold in public. Due to further austerity measures that are about to be imposed by the EU, IMF and the Fianna Fáil government in Ireland, there are a lot of protests taking place here.

Against this background of universal broo-ha-ha, I thought it would a worthy contribution to make placards that can transcend ideology, placards that give hope, or simply placards that might make people laugh for a minute in this dark time.

The group  that created some fifteen placards on that day agreed to meet up on Saturday 27th November to take part in a large demonstration against the cuts, organised by the Irish Congress of Trade Unions. Here are pictures from that demo, featuring the placards we made.

Public Apathy

Worms on a Tram

I have become again fascinated with the beauty in the movements of traditionally ugly creatures, and their reaction human-fabricated surfaces. See my previous video The Day Dublin Airport Stood Still as another example. The video below is best viewed in full screen.
