This project follows the line of a new ESB network power line which cuts through the landscape at Tomdarragh in Co.Wicklow, Ireland. Part-earthwork and part-image, the mirror records the passage of time and re-imagines the landscape without the deforestation. The mirrors reflect and refract the surrounding environment and study the lands wound from the power line. By physically adding to what is there in front of the viewer, the natural landscape is altered and the mirrors function to produce a kind of memory space. The duality of two timeframes, before and after the re-construction, are presented and contained in one image.
