DIT graduate wins Lismore ORIGINS AwardPosted: 14 September, 2015
Leonard Traynor, 2015 Fine Art graduate from DIT, has won the prestigious Lismore ORIGINS award for 2015.
Each year ORIGINS exhibits selected work from the fine art degree shows around the country in an exhibition held in St. Carthage Hall in Lismore. The exhibition is a way of presenting emerging new artists in a collective context, alongside Lismore Castle Arts respected programme of important international artists.
Leonard exhibited his work, ‘Sonic Language Acquisition’, at the Graduate Exhibition in Grangegorman in June. “In my practice I attempt to connect the immateriality of the internet and the physical world through the use of sound, old technologies and everyday objects. ‘Sonic Language Acquisition’ undertakes an analytical view of the use and appropriation of emotive images through technological devices. Emotions are immaterial and are appropriated online through images. I try to question how we define emotions and attempts to construct a new phonic understanding of emotions.”
