Steve Maher is an award winning conceptual, electronics and relational artist from Limerick, Ireland based in Helsinki, Finland and working internationally.

Maher works across a broad range of topics, at the core of Maher's practice is the exploration of cultural artefacts and rituals. Language is central to Maher's work, both through the dialogical methodologies he implements in his relational projects, as well as in its direct use as a material in his work concerning languages themselves(both constructed and naturally evolved). An important aspect of his work is also the use of technology and its metaphors, Maher is interested in the dichotomy between how science and technology work versus how it they are perceived at a cultural, ideological and social level.
