Director Biography - Paul Alistair Peter Boyle

As a graduate designer with a background in theatre, I am interested in exploring how narrative and audience interaction can shape our experiences within a space. Through my work, I aim to challenge the status quo and question the direction in which humanity is heading. I am relatively new to the design world, but I bring a unique perspective and a passion for creating thought-provoking pieces. My artistic vision is fueled by a desire to make a positive impact and inspire others to reflect on the state of our world. With each project, I strive to create immersive environments that engage and captivate viewers, inviting them to become active participants in the creative process.

Director Statement

My exhibition "Still Noise" is an exploration of the negative impact of smartphone addiction on human cognitive abilities. Through a series of thought-provoking imagery, I aim to highlight the constant distractions and overwhelming amount of information that smart devices impose on our daily lives.

My work aims to create a space where visitors can reflect on their own relationship with technology and the impact it has on their ability to process information. Through visual and sensory experiences, I hope to spark conversations and encourage a deeper understanding of the importance of disconnecting from technology to improve our overall well-being.
