In Aughinish, Co. Limerick, Ireland there is Europe's largest aluminium processing plant. Here, they refine bright orange bauxite dust into pure aluminium.The orange dust is spread out over the site in dunes, big enough to cover the area of multiple football pitches. This image simulates what might happen if all of the workers at this facility were to lose their jobs; the dust left on its own to blow all over Ireland.

Within his practice Rory Malone looks at the margin between science and the human. As a technologically advanced species we see science and industry in a utilitarian manner rather than connecting with these modern processes on a personal human level.Through discovering more about the world and about us, science, at its core, has the ability to alter how we perceive the connections we have with ourselves and each other.

Through adding poetics to scientific and industrial practices and processes Malone imbues them with a new element of interactability. This process unlocks the many cultural, social, and spiritual dimensions that these practices and processes hold.
