Statement

What is an experience? Something that breaks a polite routine and for a brief period allows us to witness things with the heightened sensitivity afforded to us by novelty, danger, or beauty – and it’s on this basis of shared experiences that intimacy is given an opportunity to grow.  – Alain de Botton

O’Reilly creates immersive video installations utilising macro photography, to observe the bodily subject with a closeness and clarity that cannot be established without the intervention of the camera. These abstract and fragmented observations create momentary engagements with the fluctuating fleshly form. The large scale projections emanate throughout the space, engulfing the viewer in a sensory and intimate experience.
