Dennis McNulty lives in Dublin, Ireland. McNulty's work is generated through an investigation of embodied knowledge in relation to other forms of knowledge, often in the context of the built environment.

Beginning with detailed research of various kinds, and informed by his studies in psychoacoustics, the works often take hybrid forms, drawing on aspects of cinema, sculpture, sound and performance.

For Liverpool Biennial 2016 McNulty presented Homo Gestalt, a collective technology that is performed into existence by the participation of audience members. The commissions include a data-driven installation at Bluecoat, a digital app that can be used to generate low resolution animations, and an off-site performance work.

Recent projects include Lofoten International Art Festival, Svolvaer, Norway (2015); Collective Gallery, Edinburgh/Carnoustie, UK (2014); and Limerick City Gallery of Art, Limerick, Ireland (2014). Previous exhibitions include Performa 11, New York, USA (2011), Encuentro de Medellin, Medellin, Columbia (2007); and the São Paulo Bienal, São Paulo, Brazil (2008 and 2004).
