Gareth is a filmmaker, animatior, illustrator and writer. He and his collaborators make up My Aunt Sally Productions and have produced shorts including Poptarts and Combat Action Team.
Delighted to have him in the studio…we may have a few things up our sleeves involving Gareth soon!!
Check out his profile and links to other work here.
As well as being the perfect height Jason is an incredible artist! Primarily he is known for his sociopolitical collages but he also turns his hand to design be it graphic, furniture or sets for TV or audio visual installations.
Check out his profile here.
Fiona is a textile artist and designer who combines old techniques such as lace making with modern technologies like laser cutting and CNC milling! We are getting excited around the studio as one of her projects is coming to fruition…keep an eye out for updates!
Check out her profile and work here.
Biological researcher at Trinity College Dublin by day and music DIY guy by night. Ash builds synthesizers and runs Dublin Music Hackspace which is housed within our studio!
Check out his profile here for more info!
Marie is a shadow puppeteer, children’s book illustrator and facilitator. Check out her profile page here and work here.
Marie joined our studio in Oct 2014 and we are delighted to have her on board. Keep an eye out for some shadow puppet workshops in the near future!
A4er Michael Kunze is a member of Blue Heart Theatre. They have 7 days to go on their Fund it campaign for a new production of Paula Vogel’s award winning play, ‘The Baltimore Waltz’.
If you like what they do….give them some support!!!
“Blue Heart Theatre are an exciting new company formed partly from former and existing members of Acting Out, Dublin’s LGBT community theatre and some new collaborators. Blue Heart aim to present new and unknown plays in Ireland and the UK, in a fresh and innovative way.
This serious comedy was American playwright Vogel’s response to the death of her brother, who died from complications due to AIDS. Whilst it has established itself as a modern American classic, this will be its first professional production in Ireland. We intend to put the play on in March, 2015 in Dublin and Sligo.”

Massive congratulations to our education officer Donal Holland. First for his new job as visiting lecturer at Harvard University and second for the launch of the Soft Robotics Toolkit on Sept 19th.
“The Soft Robotics Toolkit is an online treasure trove of downloadable, open-source plans, how-to videos, and case studies to assist users in the design, fabrication, modeling, characterization, and control of soft robotic devices. It will provide researchers with a level of detail not typically found in academic research papers, including 3D models, bills of materials, raw experimental data, multimedia step-by-step tutorials, and case studies of various soft robot designs.
Dónal Holland, a visiting lecturer in engineering sciences at SEAS and graduate student at Trinity College Dublin, is one of the lead developers of the toolkit and is especially interested in the toolkit’s potential as an educational resource.
“One thing we’ve seen in design courses is that students greatly benefit from access to more experienced peers—say, postdocs in a research lab—who can guide them through their work,” Holland says. “But scaling that up is difficult; you quickly run out of time and people. The toolkit is designed to capture the expertise and make it easily accessible to students.”

This is not a humble brag, it’s a straight up brag! Our Education Officer is awesome. Congratulations Donal and good luck with your thesis!

“I think it proves how worthwhile it is to provide students with hands-on design experiences and access to great facilities.” Donal Holland
“With a team of other students, and with mentorship from Holland, Walsh, and Dr. Catherine Wee at Spaulding Hospital for Continuing Medical Care, Maeder-York designed a soft, wearable device to help patients regain normal thumb movement—and therefore the ability to grasp objects—after a stroke. The project won the Three-In-Five contest at DMD, as did another of Gafford’s devices. The students now have the opportunity to submit their findings for accelerated review by the prestigious ASME Journal of Medical Devices.”

We are excited to have Jason Kearney join our new studio, his work is fantastic!
If you are in Dublin this Thursday hit up his fist solo exhibition; Welcome To Heterotopia: Pasted Pixels Of Contemporary Collage at the Twisted Pepper. It’s going to be great!
“The exhibition will be officially opened with a talk by Sean Hillen, without a doubt the most influential Irish artist that has worked with photomontage.
Heterotopia is a concept in human geography elaborated by philosopher Michel Foucault to describe places and spaces that function in non-hegemonic conditions. These are spaces of otherness, which are neither here nor there, that are simultaneously physical and mental, such as the space of a phone call or the moment when you see yourself in the mirror.
Jason Kearney situates himself in the spectrum of contemporary collage by manipulating pixels over paste and photoshop over paper to create surreal digital collage.
Appropriating his pieces from a wide range of source material that spans movements, continents and centuries he uses and seduces the digital medium to juxtapose characters, objects and landscapes. In doing so, he creates narratives that the original artists would have never dreamed to have existed.”
This exhibition will run until May 31st
Thursday 24th April
