Lynda Devenney’s research and practice encompasses film, sculpture, sound and performance to investigate the function and form of objects and the structural ambivalence between real and illusionary space.

Devenney questions the relationship of the object in the ‘real’ world and its function of producing an image on screen to consider the crossover between physical and digital spaces.

Her practice engages immersion and participation in constructed art installation viewing spaces that involve both moving image and sculptural forms. Her work is informed by the basic elements of moving image construction and influenced by the illusory constructs found in cinema, theatre and television.
