This project has given focus to consider the canal’s physicality within the city and its environment, the slow shiver between the natural and the manmade. From the moment the water was first released to transform the hewn stone and clay lined trench into a canal, the manmade has slowly, unceasingly, been reclaimed by the natural. Colonised and softened by reeds, rushes and moss, the natural must continually be held in check to maintain the filamentous parks for human leisure and human movement. From their creation the canals have operated as a watery transport corridor that slices through the earth-bound transport network, creating a behind the scenes route that seems to float as a separate space, untethered from the geography of the city.
Sinéad Curran makes photography and films, both analogue and digital, and temporal sculptural object based interventions. She is interested in the materiality of photographic techniques, which she uses as a tool to engage in an ecological and site specific response. Critical thinking informs her work through making, and varied disciplines that include the writings of Donna Harraway, Robert MacFarlane, Timothy Morton, and Robin Wall Kimmerer.
