“Transcending Time”, a new immersive mobile digital installation aims to brighten up the lives of Fingal residents during the Covid-19 pandemic by bringing on-demand uplifting artwork straight to their doorsteps by contacting the artist Aoife Dunne at the designated project website www.transcendingtime.ie where they can request a drive by visit from the installation van.This insightful new commission is presented under Fingal’s County Council’s Arts Office’s Public Art Programme and forms part of ‘Let’s Stay Together’ initiative.Visual vanguard Aoife Dunne is the inventor of this new outdoor exhibition where she re-envisages materials which constitute the physical world seen in her bespoke designs and 3D creations. Fingal residents will get the opportunity to request the mobile digital artwork to exhibit outside their houses/area, by visiting www.transcendingtime.ie.
Starting from Monday, June 8, the Transcending Time installation will be out on the road conjuring the absurd and fantastic into a fully travelling wonderland.The Mayor of Fingal, Cllr. Eoghan O’Brien, said: “Fingal Arts Office is committed to the local and national “In this Together” campaign where Departments across Fingal County Council are delivering a range of programmes and initiatives to support people’s physical and emotional wellbeing during Covid 19, while continuing to work on their objectives as set out in their recently published Arts Strategy 2019 – 2025: Connecting People and Ideas and Bringing Fingal to Life Through the Arts.” Fingal residents will be given the opportunity to request the installation to their house/hospital/community centre by contacting Aoife via her dedicated website (see above) where she hopes to make Fingal citizens’ lives much brighter and more colourful by offering something new and special to see and talk about while they remain close to their homes. The Artist has considered all Health & Safety Guidelines during the development of this work.Transcending Time is an evocative 3D art installation which has been created specifically for the current times we are living in, where everyone is house-bound and feeling incredibly anxious and lacking inspiration. Artist Aoife Dunne thought it would be worth creating something to uplift the whole community, bringing a new lease of life and colour to the streets.This site-specific work will be delivered straight to Fingal residents’ front doors over the course of three days initially, by a van with large digital screens. It promises to mesmerize its suburban spectators with Aoife’s multi-disciplinary confections. Providing her trademark esoteric visual and audio elements, this work will offer a much-needed release from the ennui of lockdown, and the perfect escapism into the sublime worlds of her creation.
