Join us for this online workshop, where we will use everyday materials to create replicas of the sculptures of RHA member Eilis O’Connell! Together we will scrunch and roll old newspapers and cover them in tin foil to create the twisty continuous loop of CIRCUIT. Using cardboard sheets, we’ll create the angles and curves of MASK.
The physical sculptures are located in Eilis’ garden, and are located in virtual form in Wilton Park, Dublin 2. Take a look at these sculptures on the RHA Wilton Park Augmented Reality app, available to download for free in all mobile app stores (download here for android, here for apple). Visit Wilton Park to see the sculptures come to life before your eyes using the app and QR codes!
After making your own versions of these sculptures during this workshop, we would love for you to bring your sculptures to Wilton park and photograph them!
