David Dunne’s work manifests in the interconnection between art, nature, science and technology, Dunne’s practice embraces Installation, Sculpture, Video and Live art. The primary aesthetic is through expropriation, entropy and recontextualization. 

His work has been influenced by the Arte Povera movement in making site-specific interventions evolving from ideas of entropy and the human condition. Utilizing wood, steel, concrete and low–tech archival electrical elements, this exchange of materials informs an intuitive methodological response to particular archaic industrial situations and natural site -specific environments. 

In recent work Dunne has developed a series ofarchitectural emergencies that function through chaos, collapse and transformation of scale, weight and measure. These tangible architectural constructs provide a format that analyse, processes and reinterpret how we hold the language of form and function to account.
