The Two Faces of Tomorrow


The National Sculpture Factory in association with Cork Film Festival presents The Two Faces of Tomorrow by Patrick Hough

Patrick will introduce the conceptual shift in his practice away from history represented in cinema, to new ideas around deep time, ecology, technology and the Anthropocene.

And If In A Thousand Years (2017) Still
And If In A Thousand Years (2017)

In the creation of this new work, The Two Faces of Tomorrow, to be premiered at Cork Film Festival 2020, he examines algae (or specifically cyanobacteria) as actors that have shaped all life on earth, from the deep past through to the near and deep future.
Patrick Hough predominantly uses digital media in order to investigate various historical and contemporary narratives and often uses props or artefacts to reference specific incidents from a range of cultural histories.
