    A video installation made for Sonic Vigil VII improvised music and sound art festival in Cork, Ireland on 23-24th November 2012. The installation was hosted at The Guesthouse, the warmth and feeding outpost of the main festival held down the lane at St. Anne's Church, home of the famous Shandon Bells. Rotational Intersection was created in, for, and by Cork. Making zither recordings in a house in Turner's Cross, throughout the morning and afternoon I wandered the city looking for interesting acoustic spaces to play the recordings in through a small battery powered amplifier. Printed to these sounds in the subsequent recordings made in the different spaces are the ambiances, backround noise and occasional snippets of conversation and music. My journey took me from Church of Christ the King in Turner's Cross, a small outdoor carpark, sheltering under an archway in the rain, walking down South Mall, Oliver Plunket St., through the English Market, Triskel Christchurch, the green bridge crossing from the Opera House up to Shandon, and finally St. Anne's Church in Shandon, during set up. The video was recorded at the same time as the audio recordings using a rotating technique. Thanks to Mick O'Shea, Irene Murphy and Danny McCarthy for inviting me to take part in the festival. Sonic Vigil is gold, if you get a chance go next year!

      8'40, minidv, 4:3, color/stereo, 2010 Ignition focuses on the limen between the last blocks of houses in the north part of Cork City and the gorgeous Irish countryside. Knocknahaeeny, a problematic workers neighbourhood, seems to be a village with its own rules. The travellers, the so-called Irish gypsies, have also their settlements there. Frictions raise among local population. We found a wasteland scattered of garbage piles, meadows surrounded by rows of carcasses of squeezed cars, horses wild breeded and a u.f.o.-like water tower, glimmering green light at night. That is the natural playground of the kids from the area. These extremely lively kids play hours far away from parent’s eyes, jumping walls, crossing fences and riding horses. Their vivacious presence re-enact the environment transforming it in a sort of western scenery. In this dodgy periphery Bonna-nite (bonfire night), a Celtic ritual celebrating the summer solstice, becomes the occasion to burn all sort of rubbish accumulated during a year. In a sort of challenge among gangs, the kids prepare the heaps weeks in advance, gathering the materials everywhere: at sunset they put them on fire. They especially love car tyres, for their flammable properties.
