I first visited Dublin in 1987 when a group of us hitched a lift from Belfast. Three art students in Theresa McKenna’s spare room. Dublin was also where I got to work with Declan McGonagle making ‘Guilt by Association’ at the Irish Museum of Modern Art in ‘92. After these initial visits it was 20 years before I got back to the city. I proposed to research the ‘Dublin’ square with Sean Lynch while sharing a residency with him at Covepark in Argyll. Sean generously organized some teaching time for me with MAVIS, the MA in Visual Art Practices department at Dun Laoghaire Institute of Art, design & Technology giving me the opportunity to explore the city and make a series of photographs for this project.
