A Whole New Architecture of Reality

Doireann Wallace

March 14 - April 17 2007

Doireann Wallace works with photographic imagery from a variety of sources. She is interested in photography primarily as a mass media form rather than an expressive or artistic tool. Her work examines aspects of contemporary photographic culture, with a particular interest in the banal and ubiquitous commercial uses of photography that constitute rather than represent or reflect upon our lived environment. The current work emerged out of an ongoing theoretical research project on stock photography and electronic image banks. Using images whose reproduction rights were purchased from a stock image website, it explores the possibilities of visual presentation and spatial mapping in providing an alternative model for an expanded and more fluid critique of the structural and ideological configurations of these speculative image markets, visual design and the electronic archive.

Doireann Wallace graduated from Dublin Institute of Technology with a BA in Photography in 2005 and is currently pursuing doctoral research at the Centre for Transcultural Research and Media Practice in D.I.T. This is her first solo show.
