This page shares how a printmaking process I have been experimenting with over the past three years is allowing me to create and promote social inclusion through a touch-based, rather than only a sight-based, experience of my film photography in the form of participatory installations. This methodology opens the conversation about accessibility, agency and representation within my image making creative process.

During my artist talks and solo exhibitions, I encourage the audience to interact with the printed material I create, an experience which stems from the first chapter "From The Front", of my five year autobiographical documentary (2018-2023).

This body of work explores the theme of grief, loss and resilience in my life. 

It shows my need and vocation to hold space for empathy in order to create my own ecology of care through my visual poetry art practice, which I devote to the promotion of social inclusion and cooperation thanks to photography. 

Here you can listen to my artist talk as part of the Think Tank - Photography as an Empathetic Gesture at PhotoIreland Festival 2022, where I had showcased my solo exhibition, in the form of a socially inclusive art - installation offering the experience of a full photography-based exhibition also to a visually impaired audience, for the very first time in Ireland.

The work presented here is the video-installation I created for the PhotoFringe 22 Real Utopias  Festival, Brighton, UK, collecting a series of my performance based participatory installations for social inclusion and eco-sustainability. 

I created these art-environments by bringing both production and perception of my photography, from a visual experience mainly centered in the use of sight, to the realm of empathy, within my own ecology of care.

In my participant observation and installation-based art practice's research, I choose to focus on exploring how the depth of all senses guide us to an intuitive experience of photography, for both myself as creator of the artworks and their environments, as well as for the receiver of my message.

It is through touch that I have explored my multilingual visual poetry's performance and soundscapes, in both their interaction and exchange of meaning with the audience.
