critical reflection

We are working on a text document with curator Annette Moloney to critically reflect the process, the project and the year long journey of sounding lines.

The following are images that Claire and I have chosen which we feel reflect the above.

Golden National School Fifth & Sixth Class

Golden National School Fifth & Sixth Class 14 students

We talked about Golden and how it got its name, relevant local history, personal stories about the river, the floods and its impact on the landscape, wildlife, recreational activities.

We worked in pairs, with compressed charcoal listening to the tone rhythm and pitch of Maree & Claire’s recordings of the river we made movement drawings.

Dún Uí Faoláin loop

On December the second we walked the Dún Uí Faoláin loop.  We had intended to make sound recordings but because of the proximity of the roads we could not record pure and isolated sound. On previous walks we were in more remote areas which allowed for more quality and isolated sound recording. It may be that we have to revisit these areas to make recordings.

On our journey from Dublin we talked about the movement and energy of the river but interestingly at this section of river the motion was more gentle.

What was a happy coincidence, we bumped into Shay Hurley and his volunteers. We have agreed to meet in the new year to discuss further the project. We have put  a link to Shay’s website on the link page of the blog.
