“I don’t really know about ghosts” she was saying “but I do know we can leave our bodies when we are alive” “What really now? And is it so maidy?” he said.. “A very easy way to feel em go” continued Tess “is to lie on the grass at night and look straight up at some big star and by fixing your mind upon it, you will soon find that you are hundreds of miles away from your body which you don’t seem to want at all”

Thomas Hardy, Tess D’ Urbervilles 1891

Factory

Factory image

Factory was shot on Inishlacken, a depopulated island and Atlantic Alginates, an abandoned seaweed proceesing plant. It explores liminal space, setting up an uncanny composition that alternates between feeling familar and unfamilar, past and present day.
The piece itself is a 2 channel video piece depicting a girl harvesting seaweed and the abandoned machines for processing seaweed to obtain iodine and gelatin. It is as much about a psychological landscape as about a decaying industry, perhaps drawing parallels to Irelands current economic situation.
