Eamon O’Kane

b. 1974, Ireland

Regeneration is a stop-motion animation created by filming the process of making a series of paintings based on the transformation of the Blanchardstown area (outside Dublin) over the last ten years. The process of painting echoes the construction of man-made interventions as the layers of paint chart the rapid build-up of an urban landscape. The animation loops back to before the beginnings of this development, when the area was farmland.
