The Prairie picture Show was a large scale screening which took place on public land on the prairie east of Denver. A film documenting Conor McGarrigle's Walking West performance was shown on a professional outdoor cinema system.

The film documented the 11 hour 26.2 mile psychogeographical walk along the longest continuous street in the United States comprising of footage from a camera attached to the device that drew the line along the route combined with video of the walk itself. The screening location was close to the starting point of the Walking West performance on East Colfax Avenue facing west.

Walking West is a durational performance that involves walking the entire length of Denver's Colfax Avenue, the longest continuous street in America, drawing a 26.2 mile line to be captured in a satellite photograph.

This project is a hybrid work, which combines the resolutely analog activity of walking mediated through advanced digital technology. It highlights the ways in which digital technologies permeate all aspects of our everyday lives, seeking to leverage them as tools to support new spatial practices, which have the potential to facilitate new thinking on the city and everyday life. It builds on recent work that has explored methods of combining the 20th-century avant-garde practice of walking art and the Situationist concept of psychogeography with digital technology to foster new thinking on the role of artistic and social practices in re-enchanting urban space.

24h Social will be shown at Counterpath Gallery, Denver 7-21 February. Click here for more information.

24h Social is a 24 hour long video installation which shows a day of Vine videos -6 second video tweets posted to social media- displayed at the time they were created.

At 6 seconds Vine has pared video down to its essentials. 24h Social takes this most ephemeral and pithy of forms and extends it to epic scale, in the tradition of Christian Marclay's The Clock and Douglas Gordon's 24 Hour Psycho. This should have created the most mind-numbingly tedious video of all but in fact what emerges is an engaging portrait of social media, encompassing the richness of the social activity of 86,400 individuals, a snapshot of everyday life with all its humour, banality, strangeness and brilliance.

Breaking Bad the bitTorrent edition is part of a trilogy of videos made from TV show episodes incompletely downloaded from the internet via bittorrent
Breaking Bad the bitTorrent edition is part of a trilogy of videos made from TV show episodes incompletely downloaded from the internet via bittorrent
is made from the final episode of Breaking Bad incompletely downloaded from the internet via bittorrent

The video has been linearly edited, no digital effects were used and all effects are in the corrupted file. The final episode of Breaking Bad broke bittorrent records when it was released with over 500,000 people sharing the file within 12 hours of its release. The video captures this episode of the popular TV show in the act of being shared by these users on bittorrent.

The video simultaneously acts as a visualisation of bittorrent traffic and the practice of filesharing as well as being an aesthetically beautiful and unique by-product of the bittorrent process, the file codec and the size of the bittorrent swarm as the pieces of the original file are rearranged and reconfigured into a new transitory in-between state.

Walking Stories soundwalk app



Walking Stories is a Soundwalk through Dundrum village guided by a location-aware smartphone app. Walking Stories asks what it is that connects us to the spaces we live and work in and invites us to share in the personal memories that create a place.

Starting at the Carnegie Library the soundwalk unfolds in Dundrum village leading participants on a narrative trail which recounts the personal stories that connect people to specific locations. Walking Stories reveals a virtual world of memories, associations and connections that underpin a community.

Walking Stories was created for Unfolding Narratives: Dundrum Open Submission Exhibition 2011 curated by Annette Moloney and Maeve Mulrennan and commissioned by Dún Laoghaire Rathdown County Council.
