‘Big Wheel’ - Niamh O’Malley

Medium: DVD real-time video projection. 5min 15sec loop

Location: Áras Chill Dara, Naas.

Born in County Mayo in 1975, O’Malley studied Art and Design, University of Ulster, Belfast, between 1993 and 1996, completing a PhD at the same university in 2003. She has exhibited extensively across Ireland, Europe and the US, in both solo and group shows.

This work by Niamh O’Malley contains both still photography and film. A film of moving Ferris wheel carriages is projected on to the still image of the big wheel creating the illusion that the whole image is a static-view film. The piece shows O’Malley’s innovation, melding two different artistic media to create a unified whole.
