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?

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.
Here in Ireland we’ve got election fever until 25th February.

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.
