"Temporal Dissonance" (23 September - 6 November 2011) focused on how the evolution of print practice has associations with notions of the anachronistic – traditions, objects, or technologies that sit outside of their normal, temporal domains. This research project in Germany was supported by Culture Ireland and culminated in the solo exhibition by the same name. Printmaking, when considered in the contexts of a means of mass communication and information dissemination, is an anachronistic modus operandi, superseded by advances in digital technology and the virtual world. However, printmaking also harnesses attributes of new technologies and fuses it with traditional processes and theories, resulting in a particular kind of hybridity. The outcome is a creative collision that is temporally and aesthetically discordant.
