A film installation by Ailbhe Ní Bhriain, commissioned by Sirius Arts Centre for One Here Now, the Brian O’Doherty / Patrick Ireland Project. Supported by the Arts Council Open Call Award 2018.

This film transforms the location of a working limestone quarry into a meditative response to Brian O’ Doherty’s wall painting One Here Now; the Ogham Cycle. Combining slow motion drone footage with extensive computer generated imagery, the work obliquely references some of O’Doherty’s compositional elements and also draws on its multi-layered contemplation of place, time and inscription.
