Carlow Arts Festival together with Cork Midsummer Festival invite you to share your Lockdown Environments, as artists Peter Power and Leon Butler build a digital monument to our unseen stories and quarantine spaces.
This beautifully political project allows us a glimpse of the lock-down rooms others have inhabited during this time – abstracted but recognisable. Examining isolation, survival, connection and quiet inequalities, Shelter and Place is a mutual world built from our hidden moments, collected in virtual space in the absence of the real.
Artists Leon Butler and Peter Power have been researching ways to allow the audience to upload 3D imagery using freely available software from their own place of lockdown and share it with the public. This in-development stage of the work describes the journey towards capturing and sharing personal isolated stories of place and space the pandemic has foregrounded.
‘Shelter and Place’ is an interactive experience that mixes location mapping, spatial audio and dream-like vignettes into an open source exploration of our private environments.
