Celina Muldoon is an artist based in the Northwest of Ireland. With live performance at the core of her practice she uses moving image, installation, sound and AI to develop large scale environments within which audiences engage with the socio-political structures and the body. Muldoon has exhibited nationally and internationally and has received multiple funding awards from the Arts Council of Ireland. She has participated in prestigious international residencies including the Centre Culturel Irlandais in Paris and the International Curatorial Programme in New York.

Dr Patrick Bresnihan is an Associate Professor in the Department of Geography at Maynooth University. He joined the Department in 2019.

He has a PhD in Sociology from Trinity College Dublin (2012) and an MPhil in History from Cambridge University (2007).

Patrick works across the interdisciplinary fields of political ecology, science and technology studies, and environmental humanities. His research looks at the contested politics of water, land, and energy in Ireland and how these speak to broader questions of colonial and postcolonial development, capitalist political economy, decolonisation and environmental justice.  His recent book, All We Want is the Earth. Land, Labour and Movements beyond Environmentalism (Bristol University Press, 2023), was co-written with Naomi Millner.
