Multi-stereoscope, 2015.

 

Custom-made stereoscopic slides depicting the interiors of abandoned dwellings of Co. Sligo and Mayo. The On Sight theme at the National Museum of Ireland – Country Life was ‘Welcome to the Stranger: Migrant people, places and spaces’. Imagery for this project was photographed using a homemade stereoscopic camera and displayed in a multiple viewfinder unit. It was constructed using found material and the images were merged using magnifying glasses within the binocular cones. This unit was installed in an existing window opening in a replica wattle and daub hut on the grounds of the museum. The piece was instigated through a trip in early 2015 to Ypres Salient, after encountering stereoscopic images depicting the realities of trench warfare during World War 1.
