My current practice is concerned with constructing alternative agricultural spaces, derived from the rural landscape and decaying architecture of Ireland, spaces that I can inherit and inhabit. My place within this landscape is uneasy as I grew up as the eldest or “right son” on a farm but never inherited due to fire. Further to this I also exist outside the heteronormative ideal of Rurality.
