A video-mapped projection commission for Birr Vintage Week & Arts Festival. It tells the story of the ‘Cáin Adomnáin’, one of the first ever laws to address human rights by protecting women and children, enacted in Birr in AD697. An absolute pleasure working with @lvdfilms and the twenty wonderful people who took part in it. Click on the video to watch the original video with inserted footage from it being projected onto the walls of St Brendan’s ruined church during the event (run time 07:33).
'Fitz & the 1st East-to-West Atlantic Flight' exhibition design and curation, Dunamaise Arts Centre, Portlaoise, 4 – 25 October 2018.
After researching this world-changing event in Ireland and Germany I decided to design the exhibition around the themes of 'flight' and 'navigation': original front-pages of newspapers were suspended in frames from the gallery's roof trusses to suggest flight and they were arranged so that visitors had to navigate a divergent route around them (above). A1 panels which tell the story of Col. James Fitzmaurice, the Irish airman, who co-piloted the first aeroplane to cross the Atlantic from Europe to accompany the artefacts on show can be seen directly below.
