Kirsty McNeil lives and works in Auckland, New Zealand. Kirsty McNeil works in sculpture, photography and moving image. Her research uses everyday urban mobility, such as walking and public transport, as a model to critique the built environment. Current works are the result of an engagement with walking as a spatial practice. Surfaces of footpaths that are sites of urban mobility and other everyday urban textures are photographed then abstracted using processes of photocopying and collage. After layering over papier-mâché armatures, the forms created offer possible alternative recordings and moulded impressions for place.
