Paddy McEntaggart

Senior Lecturer


My work is based around enquiry that explores relationships between technologically-mediated memory and the ways in which narrative might consequently be (re)constructed.


The projects have focused on sites of memory (real world and virtual) with a particular interest in modes of transmission and moments of transition. Much of the work resituates collected memories within a new frame or interface, finding perspectives on the relationship between users and content.

This work includes both practice (interactive installations/media) and publications.
