Design & Destroy

An exploration of Irish design through the medium of virtual reality
Presented in Virtual Reality, this exhibition of Irish stage design is curated by Jo Mangan, Artistic Director of Carlow Arts Festival and The Performance Corporation. We meet designers and their work within a Virtual Reality world – in their studios, on stage, in 360 visualisations, and during the inevitable destruction of their creations. We experience the reality that stage design exists for short and beautiful periods of time and we bear witness to the difficulty of capturing the essence of live experience.
Featured designers are: John Comiskey, Peter Power, Katie Davenport, Sarah Jane Shiels, Ciaran Bagnall, Niall Rea and Catherine Fay.


This installation is supported by the Design and Crafts Council of Ireland.
This project is funded by the Arts Council.
