Orla Mc Hardy is an associate professor and graduate director in the Department of Kinetic Imaging. Working through expanded animation, video, text, documentary, collage and sculptural installation, and within a tradition of feminism(s), her work interrogates where value is placed (and not placed) on the hidden time of labour. Her research-based practice reclaims embodied subjectivity and the interrupted time of caregiving as sites of critical knowledge. Mc Hardy received her BA from IADT, (Dublin, Ireland) and her MFA from the School of the Art Institute, (Chicago, USA).
