Conor McMahon is a Dublin-based sculptor, photographer, composer and interaction designer. He creates artifacts from moments captured as drawing, text, music, video, sound and object. He is motivated by the interpretations these artifacts can provoke, while at the same time presenting them simply as rewritten moments from his daily ritual and experience at home, at work – or just passing through from one place to the next. https://www.wildernish.com/video#/day-for-night/
