The word Palus originates from latin meaning stake or fence and soon became a word to describe a boundary. This project is an exploration of the landscape closely situated outside the old Irish Pale boundary lines which was known as 'The land of war' where fighting between foreign settlers and natives was common. Slowly exploring these topographies with a large format camera and through infrared film highlights an invisible landscape that surrounds us all. By now seeing this invisibility, the medium also attempts to highlight the stillness of place today where once so much blood poured.
