Fiona Gannon

Into the Dark with the Light On

Fiona Gannon will discuss her research on the relationship between the ‘human’ and the ‘animal’, taking two active interfaces as lenses through which to think this difference. The ha-ha, a feature of landscape architecture, will be considered alongside a combination of the gesture of an outstretched hand and the cameraphone; historical and current mediators of human experience with the herds of deer in the Phoenix Park in Dublin. Gannon will explore the ways in which these interfaces differentiate a human subject from an animal ‘other’.

This presentation will accompany the launch of Gannon’s book Into the Dark with the Light On, the first title to be published by arc public press.
