Artists: Irene Murphy, Mick O’Shea

Irene Murphy and Mick O’Shea pursue their interests in autonomy, collectivity, collaboration and how experience is mediated by the environment in their sound-art installations.  Their presentations at the annual Sonic Vigil and Seesound events in the Irish city of Cork, as well as via The Guesthouse project space, are aimed at creating conversational engagement with different modes of artistic practice.

 In the World of its Own Making – a cycle of performance-installations – Murphy and O’Shea extend these dialogues, using projected images to demonstrate the process of drawing in action. Via wireless technology, the artists amplify the act of drawing using feedback systems that mediate sound and image in an artistic translation that takes place against a soundscape made from field recordings, instruments created from found objects, adapted technology and electronics.  In this way, the audience becomes part of the environment; participating in the dialogue and creating a studio-like aesthetic.


The project is realized by the National Museum in Szczecin within MARE ARTICUM program in co-operation with Muzeum Lubuskie im. Jana Dekerta and terminal08 in Gorzów Wielkopolski with financial support by Culture Ireland provided as part of the EU Culture Programme – Irish Presidency of the Council of the European Union 2013.
