Rather than adhering to a specific medium or form, Fitzmaurice's practice is deeply rooted in a process of roaming and observation. His focus invariably centres on the everyday—the subtleties so common they are often overlooked. Through the use of found and discarded items, Fitzmaurice confronts themes of consumerism, the repercussions of mass production, and the physical structures onto which information is placed, presented, or contained. Previous bodies of Fitzmaurice's work have explored a diverse range of materials, including discarded Coca-Cola cans, plastic shopping bags, abandoned cigarette packets, and promotional flyers—each imbued with a sense of disposability that contradicts their enduring impact on the environment. By reworking and manipulating society’s unwanted debris, his works prompt reflection on the subtle structures that hold information within the public realm, as well as their evolution over time. Evoking a continued relevance that mirrors our culture's burgeoning consumption of entertainment, Fitzmaurice's work highlights the tension between the necessity of information for choice-making as well as the overwhelming inundation of data in modern society.
