This series of work was completed as part of a residency in St Nicholas Collegiate Church during Tulca 2009 in Galway. The work stemmed from research undertaken in the Henry Library focusing in particular on Enlightenment texts held there- as a result of this research the pamphlet Relic...Artifact was produced as well as a series of six drawings titled Circuits and Perplexities 2009.
Oath 2009 (installation shot below) is a digital video in which the actor continuously swears an oath on their ear (in Holbein's Dance of Death the ear is described as being regarded by the Ancients as the seat of memory hence it was customary to swear an oath on ones ear). The video was installed under the ornate grate of the church. A rubbing of this grate was used to generate the permutation which orchestrated the ringing of St Nicholas's Church Bells in Cacophony 2009, so that the bells pealed out the sound of the church floor.
