Deirdre Southey’s work focuses on the interplay between art and science. Utilising installation, sound, video, and print her work questions anthropical relations with Earth. Southey uses sounds gathered by the PALOA Underwater Observatory in the Arctic (set up by the Alfred Wagner Institute, Germany) and sounds of the Earth from outer space (by NASA). She has developed unique processes in order to capture the vibrations inherent to these sounds.
Auguries of Nature explores the concept that global warming, exisiting as a hyperobject is natures response to anthropogenic interference. Positing itself as an omen to a Capitalist and Extractivist system whose philosophy of gaining security through domination, conquest and continual expansion is leading to an uninhabitable planet.
