Anne Teahan 

Axis artist Anne Teahan, has been commissioned by DAO (Disability Arts Online) to showcase new work on their website.

'Hindsight' combines digital animation and creative writing to exposing a mystery at the core of her grandmother’s life. Using drawing, paper sculpture, space and light, she creates a digital installation exploring Irish colonial history and family stories, which have many contemporary resonances.

The Journey, 2013 by Tim Norris

Tim Norris 

The Journey was built for I Park, during my period as an Artist in Residence, culminating in the 2013 Environmental Art Biennale. I Park invites artists to retreat and respond to its unique landscape.

The form is constructed around a welded steel armature built from reclaimed reinforcement bar, ( I Park was formally an Architectural Salvage Yard there remains huge amounts of scrap metal and other materials available on hand.)

The steel armature is clad in a hard shell of Red oak bark, harvested from a 300 year old windblown oak. this surface conceals a soft underbelly of living moss, a luscious soft nest like interior. This layered globe reminiscent of the Earth, evokes ideas of protection or shelter.
