Birrer is a research-based artist.
The work confronts directly the dichotomy of modern life and earth life - across millennia. (Central Coast & Mohave Desert, California).Previously she has explored feminist iconographies (England), founded a farmer’s market cooperative as well as community gardens (Ireland).  Her personal work includes the gathering of millions of tree seeds and acorns to help secure the genetic bank of Ireland’s indigenous ancient forests. As a proponent of social change “one mind-net at a time’ she has been involved with lifelong learning, facilitating courses in both photography and organic growing.  “Sister, sister hear my heart  It's time to bring the family back   Together we  must remember earth  We must remember what life is all about” J.Trudell.  These experiences as a feminist, community activist and biodynamic practitioner inform the imagery and concepts embedded in series such as ‘duileach elemental’,‘materiality’ ‘interconnected’ and ‘stitched in time’ - both a cri de cœur and a meditation on natural earth processes.
