I headed back to Inis Oírr this Winter Solstice to project on the 600 year old O'Brien's castle. Great help came from the secondary students on the island as they drew mandalas inspired by the sun. I animated the drawings together and projected them alongside some of my own content. The weather was dreary but the support was mighty. There were so many helpers on board and since Inis Oírr always provides, the show went ahead! What craic! Thanks a million to all the school students, helpers, Aras Éanna and all the islanders who played a part.

Rua Red, Tallaght, Co. Dublin, Ireland.
Winter Open Exhibition is an annual exhibition of work from throughout the whole island of Ireland, chosen from an open submission call by Rua Red. My short film Na Lunnaí Mór An Suaimhneas will be exhibited.
Showing my new film Na Lonnaí Mór An Suaimhneas will be shown as part of the Surface Tension exhibition both at Interface gallery and residency in the stunning Inagh Valley in Connemara, Co. Galway, Ireland and at Detroit, a gallery in Stockholm, Sweden.
A video (Jane Cassidy) of the complete text of Hank Lazer's Brush Mind: At Hand, along with three musical compositions (Andrew Raffo Dewar, Holland Hopson, Michael Harp written/performed for this installation. Running time for one loop through Brush Mind is 10 minutes; to listen to all three compositions (and to see/read Brush Mind three times) takes 30 minutes.

I tested out projections on the 600 year old castle. People started coming up the hill from the village and a car drove over from the other side of the island to see what the craic was. We were getting phone calls and great feedback from the people a mile away telling me what colors were working well, what patterns they could see and "is that a rocket?!. So cool to live something so special on this magic island. What a community!!!!!!! Bigger project coming soon! Áras Éanna Inis Oirr
