Ceallaigh Norman is a New Zealand artist based in Australia. This recent work, Seismic is an immersive video, sound and photographic installation examining the environments of constant seismic activity and the ongoing global litany and legacy of technological disaster. This work is centred on the overlap of geological life and human life, seismic movement and biological movement, natural and technological disasters whilst being geographically centred on the Pacific Rim of Fire. Erosion of Suffering intercuts footage of Gunkanjima, an island in the Nagasaki Harbour, with drawings of ink and water. This piece looks at the energy that lies beneath, not only the surface of the earth, but the surface of humanity.
