Honeysuckle Joyride is a commissioned video essay in response to Bassam Al-Sabah’s show I AM ERROR at Gasworks, which opened in Summer 2021. The essay considers themes of decay, inter-species kinship and the Irish landscape through a post-humanist lens. Footage of various locations around the island is layered with computer-generated imagery, uncovering personal or domestic materialities of queerness, grief and horror as they intersect with the screen, and ideas of truth and reality in a space where public and private spheres are constantly colliding with and abstracting each other.
