With an interest in communication technologies, maritime space and sculpture and DIY electronics artist Cliona Harmey has made a series of visits to Cobh and Sirius Arts Centre during in 2015 and 2016. She will talk about her work and some of the experiments with Satellittes she made during that time well as newer work that she is developing during her residencies this year. She will show two short films made at Hawlbowline Naval base which were facilitated by members of the Irish Defence forces in 2016.   

Cliona Harmey has been active as an artist since the mid ‘90s. She graduated from the Sculpture Department at NCAD but now works across a variety of media. In 2015 she completed a major temporary commission for Dublin City Council called “Dublin Ships” which used AIS (a marine tracking technology) to output the names of the most recently arrived and departed ships to large public screens. The changing juxtaposition of the ship names formed a type of generative writing/poetry. She had solo exhibition at the Butler Gallery in Kilkenny in June 2016 where she showed some of the work created during residency times at Sirius. She previous showed work at Sirius in 2014 at an exhibition called “We All Live on the Same Sea”. Other recent exhibitions include “The Phoenix Rising” at the Hugh Lane Gallery Dublin, Lacuna at Taylor Gallery and “The Future is Self Organised” in Limerick City Gallery.
