Working on location with a child actor and a voice-over artist, a pre-Silicon Valley orchard provides a significant mental and emotional backdrop to this narrative.
The Myth of the Many in the One was funded by the Arts Council of Ireland with support from the Kadist Foundation, San Francisco. A book about the project is available, commissioned by the Steirischer Herbst Festival, Graz, Austria as part of the exhibition Liquid Assets curated by Luigi Fassi & Katerina Gregos. At Steirischer Herbst, the installation was accompanied by another commissioned project, The Wonder Years. The Myth of the Many in the One has also been presented at Bern Biennial (2012), Zero1 Biennial, San Jose (2012) and as a solo exhibition at Wilfried Lentz Gallery, Rotterdam.
