This video was created as a visual response to a 90 second composition by Teodor Iuliu Radu from the Royal Irish Academy of Music (RIAM), Dublin.
Inspired by the work Norman Mc Laren and Stan Brakhage, I hoped to achieve a lively and frantic sequence of images. 
Using Adobe After Effects, I compiled short videos and image sequences to accompany the music.

Reminiscing my Rome book cover project research

Lino and Typography Print by myself and Laura Dunne. The project was based on WWI Poetry. Wilfred Owen was our poet of choice from Britain.
Our print is based on the poem “The Last Laugh,” by Wilfred Owen. The poem itself is reminiscent of a nursery rhyme so we focused on WWI from a child’s point of view. 
 We wanted to highlight the fact that so many children, as young as 12 years old applied to fight for their country and were accepted, age limits being overlooked. The three teddy bears represent childhood and also three deaths that occur in the poem. The teddy bears are in the style of a stencil as influenced by modern war art, often graffiti. The offset red areas relate to the methods by which the soldiers were killed; bullets, shrapnel and bayonets. The red splashes express the violence and brutality incurred as part of WWI.
