Sam Ruscica

UK & Ireland Artist in Residence

Artist Intro

I'm using the DAS residency to refine work I have made over the years using photography and video. I hope to make it available to a greater audience. I'm also working on a film in memory of a friend of mine who passed away, Paddy Murphy. The film involves using video footage he recorded himself using camcorders, and commentaries of friends and people who knew him. I've also been exploring the possibility of creating dramatizations of events in his life. A lot of what I do involves documenting and recording peoples stories. I'm mostly interested in themes that relate to or involve young and old people, the bicycle, exploration and transition. This is my first arts residency. I'm very grateful to be here.
