Shauna Creighton makes digital images, installations and mixed media artworks. By using an ever-growing archive of found imagery to create autonomous artworks, Creighton tries to approach a wide scale of subjects in a multi-layered way, likes to involve the viewer in a way that is sometimes physical and believes in the idea of function following form in a work. The presence of symbolic catholic imagery is always prevalent in the images of the "Irish rural archive". This is not so noticeable in the digital age; does this suggest the process of memory is now different? Archives that were once fixed are now unstable. In the digital age when we try to process memory the generational issue of the photograph as physical object comes to the fore.
