E m e r g e D, an international, artist led organisation that promotes and enables emerging artists across a range of media with a focus on site responsive, context-led work.

[shift] was an attempt to re-engage with the empty shop units of the Merrion Superstore, to re-ignite a sense of the present and the immediate and a sense of community and belonging.

Other recent projects include participation in Testbed2, a series of short residencies at Leeds Metropolitan Gallery, and Left[...and left again] an ongoing dialogue between Gibson and Ric Spencer, Perth, Western Australia using walking as a medium to explore the space around
