Our Art / Moira Ness
Moira Ness is a self-taught emerging photo-based artist specializing in contemporary landscapes and algorithm based writing. Her current body of work, entitled “Cyclical”, explores and experiments with Nietzsche’s theory of eternal recurrence. Moira explores this idea through visual and written repetition. She digitally manipulates mirror-like repetitions into her photos. The finished editing does not stand out, but rather is discovered through the mind’s habitual recognition of subtle patterns, symmetry, and discrepancies. She utilizes text algorithms to create repetition based written work with source text from various social media platforms. She was a finalist and overall winner for the 2017 UNTAPPED Emerging Artist Competition for The Artist Project. Moira participated in the 2017 Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition where she won the Emerging Artist Award. Moira is currently showing her work at NordArt in Germany. She was recently was the artist in residence at The 108 Residency in New York. Moira lives and works in Toronto, Canada.
