Dublin LIve Art Festival, winter

Added on by David Caines.

As a reiteration of the work made for Love Letters to a (post-) Europe, I made an action using the same elements inside the lobby of one of the buildings on the campus of Dublin Instutute of Technology in Grangegormon for Dublin Live Art Festival.

For an hour I drank mouthfuls of salt water the ratio of seawater, with each mouthful I attempted to speak: 'I came to the sea and I was scared, my heart is broken'

Infront of me were two copper pipes resting and overed in salt and vinegar causing verdigris to appear over the duration of the action. Each mouthful of water either dribbled onto my shirt or was spat out washing over the salt and copper, I felt I was at sea.
