Stand Before Our Temples
Contemporary Irish landscape is shaped by oddities with seemingly little or no significance. Investigation into this space strikes the observer with such importance that this lack of exploration is confounding to say the least. Here we witness the active and mindless construction of inherent contradictions within our landscape and are thus struck with the outward form of thoughtless content, a content of non-foresight. If a Greek temple thought its people how to die, what does a road to nowhere teach us? By documenting the landscape at the moment of confrontation between the subject and their environment the psychological malaise such a contradiction must create is realized. How does a world function which rests out of a surrounding landscape of non-sense?
