Art piece developed during my time in TOMBOLO19

TOMBOLO is a site-responsive art project created by LAY OF THE LAND that encourages exploration of the  wild landscapes of isolated regions within Ireland.

The 3 week outdoor art residency culminated in a 4-day public exhibition and took place on Brow Head, West Cork, Ireland.

Fourteen old tractor windows, create a glass wall that merges with the landscape allowing the visitor to see beyond the glass, but also observe its own reflection as part of the environment.

Following landscape lines from the sea and grass, the different shapes and sizes of the glass sheets determine the position and rotation of the wall.

 

This creates different images throughout the day that follow the sun path and movement of clouds.
 

 


This piece creates a space for contemplation that speaks about the agricultural heritage of this area and invites the audience to reflect upon the way we perceive our environment.
