David Fagan

He saw the world and was left wanting

A solo exhibition by Dublin based artist David Fagan, ‘He saw the world and was left wanting’ features a selection of audio-visual pieces that explore viewer engagement with both place and time.


The works exist internationally and in potential multiplicity through their handling of live web cameras and television broadcasting. Through these systems, visitors are invited to encounter parts of the earth remote to them.


However, despite the aspirations involved in transmitting a moment or object, what watching from afar more often than not reveals is the enormity of our disconnection – both geographical and personal.
