How We Float

Michelle Doyle

Description

Distance From Stone is a visitor centre video about the history of heritage, stone and the city. Dublin in 2018 is a living museum and one whose obedient citizens have little control over. Taking pebbledash as a symbolic worship of stone and aspiration entirely unique to Ireland, the film negotiates in what way the city has made citizens obedient. Privatisation of resources and of history further distance the people who should be able to access them. Is the city an incinerator, which routinely burns heritage and turns it into a combustible gas?
