Landing Place was a Commonage-commissioned project that took place at Pigeon House Hotel, Dublin. The site includes remnants of a fort, a harbour, an electricity generating station and a hotel. I designed a publication featuring twenty-eight photographs that exposed the area’s ecological, geographical and architectural character in different ways. It included a text by Hollie Kearns.
From the Press Release:

Through collaborative work, a series of small research events and the activation of a studio space at Pigeon House Hotel, four new pieces of work in sound, film, installation and performance have been developed between January and May 2013. Landing Place is a Commonage-commissioned project, curated by Hollie Kearns and Rosie Lynch and developed in partnership with Dublin City Council Heritage Office.
