Joe Ryan

My work and research interests revolve around Art, institutions and Social control, which could involve complex labyrinth structures and intertwining systems all interdependent on each other, I am also interested in architecture and the built environment where buildings invoke their own form of control and power, such as Jeremy Bentham’s theories of panopticons and Erving Coffman’s “total Institutions”.
As a multi disciplinary artist I work in a variety of mediums such as etching, film, painting projections, installation where the medium can be interchangeable and hybrid or where the concept of power dictates the medium in that which medium would be more aesthetic or visual.

Multi-disciplinary artist. Work methodologies include constructing and deconstructing mediums and splicing forms together often into large installations which ingulf and dominate a space.
