Mechanism is a light and sound installation responsive to the environment by artist Andrew Kearney, comprising of electronic, industrial and theatrical components that combine to respond,  listen and react to the everyday life of Cork city centre where the gallery is located.

The installation features three new works which the artist has created specifically for the Crawford Art Gallery and continue Kearney’s exploration of the layered history of people and buildings.

Mechanism continues Kearney’s evolving work that builds on his exploration of the layered experience of space. He scrutinises how buildings function within a given landscape, how people circulate through spaces and the historical and contemporary power relations that underpin the evolution of architecture[1].

For Andrew Kearney, his interest lies with what the work does – always regenerating, never predetermining, constantly seeking new information to create new sounds and visual possibilities.
