Communion (2023) is an archival project examining Irish identity at the beginning of the new millennium. Its participants have been asked to recall making their First Holy Communion, a key rite of passage in traditional Irish life and a lens through which the project’s enquiry is focused. The collected interviews shed light upon the country’s conservative past; its increasingly globalised future; and the frenzied Celtic Tiger greed of the transitionary period in question.

The project takes an experimental approach to publishing, Iterating on the many ways in which an archive may be expressed with a focus on materiality and artefact throughout. In doing so, its range of outputs play with the forms through which identity and power are expressed.
