sineadWho are you and what do you do?I'm a visual artist based in Dublin. Mostly I tinker with things; cameras, electronics, light-bulbs, code, time-and-reality. I also pretend to know stuff about science.

What will you be talking about at Hack Circus: THIS IS REALITY? I'll be talking about how we look at realities, and the machines that help us do so.

What are you working on today? Today I'm working on an artists' residency in rural Finland, a presentation on WordPress, new negatives, and my son's English homework.

Give us one insight about reality based on your work... Size matters.

What are you working on today? Today I was working on the technical side of a new piece and trying to get data from the web to send over OSC using node.js. It almost works. Almost.

Give us one insight about reality based on your work... Working with dance and technology is really about patience.

Name one great project you've seen recently. Currently I am obsessed with Sophia Brueckner and her singing of her code. It's oddly emotional.
