Tom Mcdonagh

My practice looks at the space between how things are and how things could be. I create speculative installations using light, movement and silhouette, seeking a meeting place for our perception, imagination and politics. These psychological spaces explore our tangled feelings around the potential and peril of emerging futures. The ecological crisis is connected to a narrowing of our collective imagination towards the future. My practice asks how we actively repair and cultivate relations with one another and the biosphere. I look towards exuberance in culture and nature, as both protest and antidote to our current malaise.
