Collaboration
with Margaux Smith.

What does your data shadow look like? How does it intersect with your relationships and everyday life? These are the questions raised by Margaux Smith and Meadhbh McNutt in A Data Love Story. Through visualisation and narration, Margaux and Meadhbh tell the story of a romantic relationship through the lens of linguistic data, based on texts shared between Meadhbh and her boyfriend, Eimhin across two fortnight periods.

Idolise me.

Idolum (Latin: phantom or misconception) brings together candid texts, anonymous letters and photographs that consider the human urge to redirect grief or confusion towards an object of fixation. Looking at cultures of masculinity and martyrdom in the artist's home county Donegal, the project questions the ways in which we fabulise those we admire in their absence. 

Translate me.
