A small glimpse of the film installation Limit Horizon, installed at The Maltings in Birr, Co. Offaly, as part of Birr Vintage Week & Arts Festival, 2011.
The installation involves Super 8 projection, furniture cobbled together with discarded wood from the Killaun Bogland Reserve's walkway, and an audio short story, The Hammer, narrated by Maura Foley & Michael Thomas Hough.
This installation work is caught somewhere between a memory and an effort to understand a little more the human position in time & space, the effect of distance on communication, with self & with others, with our memories & our histories.
The films & the writing explore the meaning of Horizon and Limit, poetry and metaphor, and the rhythm of hammers on wood.
