A loving tribute to
the Grand Canal
'Something in the Water' is the first exhibition at Wilton Park to use Ireland's largest outdoor LED installation dedicated solely to the arts as a piece of cultural infrastructure. Measuring 24.5-metres, the digital art installation offers a whole new platform for artists to connect with the city and a never-before-seen opportunity for Dubliners to immerse themselves in the world of digital art.
Kev’s art practice focuses on the use of light and movement. He’s interested in harnessing technology to create surreal worlds of emotive expression while situationally framing them in their surroundings. His work often finds him collaborating with other artists - especially dancers and musicians. It is here that he finds himself at his most creative - trying to find a dialect that helps express the group’s individual creative thoughts while working together. Kev likes to facilitate a space for chaos to roam and waits for unexpected moments to be captured. The work questions traditional forms of narrative found in entertainment and is often self reflective.
