ISLANDERS – When darkness falls. (A light projection)
ISLANDERS is a cinematic light projection mapping project of over 50 worldwide island artists working with glass.
This collaborative borderless artwork, straddles giant continents and powers, and encompasses wider world thinking by tiny singular actions. Róisín de Buitléar has collaborated with artists from Islands around the world using original artworks created on miniature glass slides.
Originated by Róisín de Buitléar, this unique artwork has been created as a collective act of solidarity within the glass community.
As a people ISLANDERS are intrinsically independent but at the same time dependent on the wider world. In bringing together Islanders for this project, a call is being made to wider Island communities to show how independence can be used to strengthen community not divide it.
An evening projection will be shown on Friday 13thSeptember 2019 at 21.00 on Murano Island Venice, using glass artworks. The artwork invites discussion around how living on an island can inspire and influence artwork, business and community. How island communities can drive change, create identities and build on connections with other island nations.
The collaborative imagery, Venetian location and projection will culminate in making the ISLANDERS a unique artwork
