“This body of work explores the paradox of leisure in society, from Aristotle’s theory that leisure is ‘the absence of the necessity of being occupied’ to contemporary times where leisure is affected by cross-cultural factors and so many other evolving trends. Through painting, which ironically in itself is a leisure activity to some, the work examines leisure as a state of being in today’s world.”
Elisa Feiritéar

Elisa Feiritéar's work exhibited at the CIT CCAD Degree Show in June 2015 focussed on the influence of the ubiquitous smartphone and Social Media on contemporary social interactions and on our experience of our environments. Do we use these technologies to record or enhance interactions, or to replace those interactions?

The works suggested intriguing and complex connections between a wide range of research and study areas, many pursued at CIT, including the arts, engineering, social studies, media communications, and business, while also utilising the unique abilities of painting to explore and portray both the perception and actuality of a situation.
