Deirdre Feeney works interchangeably with the translucent material of glass and the projected (moving) image. Deirdre exhibits in Australia and internationally and is currently a PhD candidate and sessional lecturer at the ANU School of Art and Design.
Deirdre’s practice originated in making miniature architectural structures in glass, housing her projected video-animations. More recently she has inverted her practice to collaboratively explore how glass, as optic-machine, can create the projected image, applying techno-cultural histories of optical moving image devices to her contemporary practice. Deirdre completed a BVA at the Australian National University, having previously gained a BA at Trinity College Dublin. She is the recipient of several grants and awards, including ANU scholarships, Stephen Procter Fellowship and Australia Council grants. She has represented Ireland at the European Glass Context in Denmark and was artist-in-residence at the National Film and Sound Archive in Australia.
