The New Sight
This is an ongoing photographic series showing modified representations of the interface walls of Belfast, Northern Ireland. There is an intensity to how the walls are defined and by re-imaging them, I wish to add to the political debate surrounding their existence and the plans to move forward and remove them. The use of murals and collective art in my opinion can alter our understanding of these structures and their use has informed my research and project development. My aim is to find new artistic strategies to cautiously explore the evaporation and disappearance of the 'Peace Walls' in Northern Ireland and by presenting this New Sight, I hope to encourage new forms of thought and critical thinking as we look to what the future holds for Northern Ireland.
