Saidhbhín Gibson’s work is focused on raising awareness around the hierarchy of the human-centric interpretation of the more-than-human world.

The work is manifested by thinking through the handling of materials, and records chance encounters with plant, avian and non-human animal lives. Photography, sculpture, video, text and thread-based works seek to respond to the commodification of the natural world by, and for, humans. There is a dialogue asserted to give an imagined voice to the more-than-human experience of the impact of human activity on the planet.
