DRAWING SERIES, 2014

Series of drawings in preparation for ‘Unknown Shores’, a major, sculptural installation presented at the UCD O’Brien Centre for Science.  The project explores through symbolism and allegory the many struggles modern science faces in an age of climate change and unprecedented environmental destruction. The project was partly inspired by Meadhbh’s work with Dr. Emmanuel Reynaud, UCD School of Biology and Environmental Science.
