In Situ An audio installation inspired by local stories written in stone. Using rock to build, protect, incarcerate, separate and decorate are just some of the ways in which people have traditionally found use for this natural material. In the audio pieces, writers Billy O’Riordan and John Fitzgerald look at some local places of interest and the role played by stone in servicing the needs and demands of a bustling community. Loss of individual identity is an intrinsic part of this narrative, which sadly for many, also proved to be written in stone.

In Silico Digital projects with an extended reach – hyper-local for a global audience. Filmmaker Michael Hughes creates a video of the sites used in the audio pieces of local writers Billy O’Riordan and John Fitzgerald.
