At the core of Andrew Carson’s practice is the exploration of social structures, systems, and methods of communication. He is interested in the use and effects of digital devices and social media as the modern ubiquitous means of contact.
Questions that arise for Carson include; what comparisons can be made between our habitual uses of these modern forms of contact with the use of prayer and ritual across cultures? How do we reconcile virtual and physical realities, and can we overcome the psychological distances in human interaction?
Carson’s work is installation based, often as a response to, and in conversation with, specified spaces. He works in a variety of media, including digital sound and image, print, and paper.
Andrew Carson is based in Dublin, researching an MFA in NCAD, having graduated from DIT with a BA Fine Art in 2010. He has shown in solo and group exhibitions extensively around Ireland, the UK, Greece, Italy, Spain, Poland and Japan. His work is featured in the OPW state collection.
