Lorraine Neeson works primarily with lens based media, light, sound, video installation and architectural intervention to create phantasmagoric environments that disrupt and disorient a conventional sense of spatial and temporal logic. Underpinning her practice is the exploration of themes of light and darkness, visibility and invisibility and the manipulation of hidden and undisclosed information. Neeson transformed the Butler Gallery into a modern day phantasmagoria by means of reflections, shifting shadows, dematerialising objects and disembodied sound. While trickery and devices are used to create this experience, the means of production are always present and visible within the space.
