What I’m Working on Now

See here for a quick overview of whatever I happen to be working on at the moment.


More audio! working towards a major development in my practice involving study and more ambitious sound projects. Working on a selection of the following: GPS Sound walk. Podcast and Immersive Sound Installation. Yum!

I am getting quite obsessed with speakers, and am on the scrounge for freebies..

In printmaking, there are a few annual shows I contribute to, and I am eyeing up larger scale work and carborundum…

Also making a bit of a push on all things funding related, ETSY,  a Donate option and sponsorship option via Patreon; I have even added a ‘Support’ page to this blog!.

A new website is under development as well to showcase the digital art pieces.

Dropped off a copper plate etching (hard ground) to SO Fine art Editions for the summer show.



This is an R&D year!

  • I am developing a major piece of work requiring a lot of drawing and research out in the landscape; this will take some time! I am aiming for the West of Ireland, Iceland and Norway – over the next few years…. Just as well I am not in a hurry.
  • I am getting more involved in Soundscapes (Experimenting here – art.https://soundcloud.com/irish-etchings-irish-etchings/tracks).
  • Lots of applications being done for funding and residencies – planning ahead – takes AGES.

The GSd Exhibtion continues to travel too. See  http://www.anaturalselectiongsd.com/ for the latest updates.

UPDATING my ONLINE Portfolios 

Lost the login for Vimeo and FORGOT (!) where I put up the still images – found it eventually, Flickr of course!

General Protfolio –




In fact this is my first ever attempt at animation – this is a ‘live’ recording of ‘Chomp’ for Playhouse on Liberty Hall Dublin 2009.


A Natural Selection 

This is going to be BIG. It is hoped to have the show tour internationally as well.

Currently working on this – http://www.anaturalselectiongsd.com/ Prints just delivered, now helping out with the promotion.

This summer I had a new video piece included in Synthesis II in the IFI http://www.ifi.ie/film/ifi-fractal-music-synthesis-ii/ and Tweet Piece was also shown again in the CMC. I need to do a bit of re-editing on both of these too.

And I am updating all my online material. Just (re)found my Flicker Account – I’d lost it! http://www.flickr.com/photos/irishetchings/  A handy online portfolio. And, of course, the Blog!

MART opening night 

A commission by MART to make a piece for them about their new venue and its new life, with reference its past – in the trade ‘respondiig to’ the building.

I have blogged about this extensively,  but here’s a quick view of the constructions.

The constructions in situ

Every artist who helped with the FundIt campaign also got invited to make a piece using a cardboard box – and not much else! The show was called ‘Curb Your Carrie Bradshawism’ Here’s my piece for it – ‘StateOfDissipation’.



Tweet Piece for FRACTAL 

Right now I am recutting the video animation to match the final track – here is the music – I hope to have a completed integrated version on line asap
