My work explores Ireland’s housing crisis through the use of photography and text-based work. As a young adult in Ireland emigration feels inevitable and through my work, I am exploring dereliction and also reclaiming lost parts of the Irish language. I use screen printing for my text-based work and I have been exploring zine and bookmaking to archive this work. I am specifically documenting the irony and classism of the use of steel to board up vacant council housing during a housing crisis. Through the use of photography and installation I am confronting the viewer with these landscapes and derelict spaces they normally would not be faced with.
