David Dunne’s work manifests in the interconnection between art, nature, science and technology. Dunne’s practice embraces Video, Audio, Installation, Sculpture and Photography. The point of departure is through expropriation, entropy and recontextualization. His work has been influenced by the Arte Povera movement, in making botanical interventions and land art evolving from ideas of entropy, working with the notion of chaos, collapse and transformation. Working with steel,wood and low–tech archival electrical elements, this exchange of materials informs an intuitive response to particular archaic industrial situations and natural site-specific environments.
