      im still trying to encourage discussion, progressive change, action, fun, thinking, real architecture is the medium for all stuff, it is a “tool of communication” it is free, open, uncensored, experimental, challenging and last but not least the backbone to real events. it is an “act of art”

      will you respond?

      while walking the beach on lahinch on a Sunday afternoon on the 5th of august, the bank holiday weekend, I had a notion of drawing a big phi plate on the beach sometime.

      The following Sunday while walking with my friend Hien on the beach in bray I drew a phi plate on the sand with a small stone. Between us the idea of having an art weekend in lahinch when college starts back came into being.

      Phi is an irrational number, 1.618……., it is a growth pattern that manifests itself throughout all of nature. It is described by some as “gods favourite number”. I believe trying to understand it gives a sense of just how strange and beautiful life is.

      The objective of the weekend will be to create a massive piece of land art, which will be constructed by whoever wants to contribute. It will be fun, inclusive, temporary, natural and hopefully inspirational. It will be constructed with natural materials, the lines with stones, the spiral with shells, stones, sea weed, twigs, flowers and all other things that have manifest in them.

      The construction will be filmed and at the end all involved will stand in the water and make noise, roar, dance, sing, splash, anything.

      This scene will be photographed in black and white. One picture will be selected and this will be titled “playing with phi ( gods favourite number) “

      I am interested in the process of bringing this notion into being. Making an idea a reality.

      Oraiste will be a “tool of communication” which will advertise, inform about, serve as a place to view this “act of art”

      Everyones welcome,

      Don’t forget your togs

      See you in clare
