One year artist residency at Mottifont,National Trust.
An exploration into developing a material language to describe and convey feelings surrounding ephemerality and time evoked by a particular landscape using the book form as a repository.
‘Miniature Vistas’ explores alternative photographic techniques such as pinhole photography, photogram’s and text. The cameras used to create the images are made from household containers. Each image is processed by hand; as a consequence each print with all its attendant imperfections and mistakes is unique. Combining this with an investigation into alternative forms of mark-making, the actions of the water, wind and her own body, Eileen has created a language that is both meditative as well as being a manifestation of experience.
