Tom O’Dea, Dr.

National College of Art and Design, Dublin, Ireland

Tom O’Dea is an artist who works with mixed-media sculpture and social practice to interrogate the political implications of practices of computation and organisation in contemporary society. His work explores ways to understand how different forms of knowledge impact upon our ways of acting and being the world.

His project – The Department of Embedded Knowledge – explores the role of different forms of knowledge in the lived experience and administration of the city. The department interrogates knowledge that is embedded in people and in places, in communities and in relationships, in the multiple forms of the living and in that which is not.
