Tina O’Connell - Installation from 1999

In Dublin - 1999. Off Site Commission. Project Arts Centre, Dublin
A one tonne sphere of solid bitumen, collapses through a circular aperture, pulled down by the force of gravity into the space below. Relayed back to the viewer on CCTV, or captured by Polaroid film, the spectacle exists just outside of a normal visual register of change. It maps the transformation of the object and the space that it moves between.
