Tully’s work poetically interprets the intangible relationships we have with everyday items and illuminates new ways of thinking and interacting with the world around us.
He explores the subtle, almost alchemical, alteration of everyday objects, shifting the audiences perception of these familiar forms. His work aims to reconnect with objects and understand what their functions (and by extension, our needs) really are.
Tully’s research (which led to a MFA at the College of Fine Arts in Sydney, in 2014) explores various real and imagined Artificial Intelligence, addressing the value of our relationships with non-sentient forms.
His current body of work looks at the way these relationships feed back into our own capacity to interact meaningfully with one another. This work often integrates complex technologies with quotidian components, investigating the clash between old and new modes of thought.
