Lisa Shaughnessy, DIT, Installation. - "Viral". I create my own paint using Polyvinyl acetate and pigments, and the work is made from that. "Playful in it's nature, Lisa's work is centered upon the physicality and materiality of paint. Her work deals with the historical and conceptual meaning of painting within a contemporary context."
Ashleigh Ellis, Crawford College of Art and Design, "Stratta". Stratta is made from layers of acetate and cat gut. "The layering of two dimensional information creates a new form, a structure made possible with accumulated data. Compiled maps show a three dimensional topographical view of networks, a blue cloud then seen to grow inside."
