Paris based Cleary + Connolly, former AIB prize winners, proposed a controversial and unusual application for one of the permanent commissions. They are creating special, discreet viewing posts, the type usually seen on seafront promenades, positioned in four locations. Instead of being presented with a magnified view of the scene in front of you, as you would expect, the artists have developed a project which challenges our stereo vision. Two films of the view will be presented, one for each eye, but depicting different activities within the scenes, times of day, or different seasons. They have worked closely with the Perceptive Science Laboratory at CNRS Paris and CLARITY, Centre of Sensory Web technologies, in Dublin to develop the technology, which represents a highly contemporary example of a successful arts and science collaboration. Local children via a school and youth group worked closely with the artists to devise and then film scenes for the locations which are shown on a continuous loop in the installations.
