February to May 2014
Digital Artists Studios – “The residency programme encourages and supports artists in the creation of innovative, challenging and experimental work by providing a creative hub with access to a range of facilities and resources. There are three international residencies and 12 UK & Ireland residencies each year.”
For this residency I wanted to expand my digital conceptual and technical skill to expand upon the ‘Mini Museum’, a project I began in 2013. Through the Mini Museum I take influence from projects abroad and in Belfast, creating collections that are inspired by and represent places I have visited through my own photographs, drawings, and by collecting stories and objects. This had recently focused on an artist residency in USA in Virginia and New York (Sept-Nov 2013) where I created site-specific works and had two solo shows of the Mini Museum series. The DAS residency gave me the opportunity to enhance and develop the Mini Museum project, which I see as an on-going key element of my practice in the next few years.
