Work in Progress

Discovering footage online of her long-dead grandfather led performer, writer and ex-television presenter, Caitríona Ní Mhurchú to explore the nature of obsolescence in a changing world. Part ode to the lighthouse keeper, part personal history and part enquiry into evolving technology, Transmission is an inventive and playful meditation on what our futures might hold and how our histories might be recorded.

Transmission brings together the creative team of Zia Bergin-Holly (Design), Bird in Snow’s, Niall Toner Jr and Les Keye (Sound Design) and Jason Byrne (Video Design).
