Johanna Nulty [b.1993] is an Irish based visual/sound artist. Nulty has a BA in Fine Art from Institute of Technology Sligo and received her MFA from Ulster University, Belfast. Nulty’s work is predominantly object based, exploring sound from mass produced materials and found objects. Her practice explores the possibilities of the subconscious movement of everyday material and often results in an amalgamation of audio videos, sound pieces, sound drawings and photography.
