Terminal Communication

Michael Fortune

Description

‘Terminal Communication is a fixed-frame work featuring the actions of drivers as they approach a badly signed junction leading into Rosslare Harbour ferry port, in County Wexford. Filmed from a vantage point overlooking the junction, the camera captures the incidents which locals then claimed was an everyday occurrence. This work was made with the assistance of Mike Kavanagh and commissioned under Wexford County Councils Per Cent for Art Programme in 2007. Music used in the work is by Valerio.’
