Old North, Isle Rocks (Hen Ogledd)

My project Old North, Isle Rocks is a re-imagination of Cumbria, northern England. Cumbria is a place where I feel a psychogeographic connection to both aspects of my Anglo-Irish heritage. It is an English county with Irish connections through Norse-Gaelic history. 

Through a material exploration, spoken-word poetry and moving image, I aim to shift the way graphic narratives are presented and told through an installation format.

  • My practice involves alternative story-telling through graphic narratives, moving image and installations. I focus on writing and drawing non-linear, abstract and psychogeographic poetry and stories. My aim is to create ways of presenting graphic narratives outside of print formats , that can connect with people on a experiential level.
