Paul is the recipient of a 2015 Royal Ulster Academy Outstanding Student Award and has earned a place in their prestigious annual show in the Ulster Museum. Oct 2015 – Jan 2016. Paul is also the recipient of the Digital Arts Studio MFA Residency Award and will receive studio space and broad support for a 4 month period in the autumn 2015.
The Orpheus building has been home of the Belfast School of Art for around 40 years and is scheduled for demolition to make room for the university site consolidation. Paul has been recording the building for 2 years but for the last 6 months has been actively recording details & features plus surround sound recordings of the students at work. This footage will be made into a film during the DAS residency. Whilst there will be a lot of material about the building from many people, I don’t feel rushed. the development timescale is important to allow for proper consideration of a work in honour of a friend departed.
