Another great workshop at Medtronic Meruve. It was amazing to hear everyone’s stories of working through the Covid 19 pandemic.
My art piece for the Breathing Life into Art commission will be a permanent piece of art at the Medtronic Meruve plant. I want it to be about the employees and their experiences of working during the Covid 19 pandemic, so these workshops are essential to my art making process.
First day of workshops at Medtronic!
So grateful to everyone who took part in the first workshop. What a great experience – cathartic in a way, in regards to working at Medtronic making and shipping ventilators during the Covid 19 pandemic.
Your purpose here is to keep people alive – one of the stand out lines from the day.
This day 6 years ago when I was living in a pod in the Joshua Tree desert, during my A-Z West Residency with artist Andrea Zittel.
When I was writing my proposal for this artwork (Breathing Life into Art) I knew I would want to work with materials that are used in making the ventilators. During this site visit I was interested in exploring these acrylic spacers – they are used in holding the microphone. Luckily I got to watch it being assembled on the day.

Site visit today at Medtronic Mervue – it is always so fun to see the behind the scenes in here!

PULSE exhibition at the Limerick City Gallery of Art finishes up on the 18th September – pop in for a look if you’re in the area.
In the language of flowers, statice stands for memory and remembrance, and is a great way to tell someone that “I miss you.”
In the Beginning, 2022
Only a few days left to see IT COMES IN WAVES at the Courthouse Gallery and Studios Ennistymon. It finishes up this Saturday the 10th.
Work hard, snuggle hard!
