Working on my installation in the Dublin Hills

The porcelain turns dark against the city view

Today i was up in the hills working on the installation of my sculptural and sound piece in the hills called “Natures Window” I had some family help, I certainly could not have done it without them. We needed to get a transparent line rigged up between the two main trees on either side of the “window”. I had tree huggers to protect the trees from any damage. We needed a ladder and plenty of organisation especially when you are dealing with porcelain clay ! The weather was perfect, no rain for once that week and the sun came out before the rain came down and caused me to stop for the day. I took plenty of photographs and some video work was done. You try your best with these things and get as many angles and photos , videos as you can and hope you have got enough.

I was setting up my camera working on my installation , checking the area and testing the light a few days before , trying to judge how the installation was going to work.

Its wonderful to see the changes in this spot through the months of going up there. I was very honoured to receive a bursary from DunLaoghaire Rathdown County Council as one of their Emerging Artists for Visual Arts in 2020.
