My name is Erin O'Flynn and I am a multi-media artist based in New York City. I am currently a MFA Photography Candidate for 2024 at Pratt Institute.

  In my work, I use archival and original photography, films, and sculptural assemblages to reorient our relationship to our environment and the history embedded within it. It challenges traditional dichotomies, dissolving distinctions between the natural/manmade, decayed/developed, and virtual/physical in our environment. Throughout my creative practice, I have explored how to dissolve the common juxtapositions imposed onto human beings’ environments. My current body of work, Nuclear Family, dissolves the past/present binary of the legacy of nuclear war within the landscape of New York City and elsewhere. It explores the U.S. governments’ environmental degradation and responsibility, how images reveal/conceal knowledge within online platforms, and in what ways one can move towards a future of care for ourselves and environments.
