a day in the light

Westport, Co. Mayo 27th, 28th, 29th July
UCD, Dublin 10th, 11th, 12th August 2009

'a day in the light' is one of a series of workshops forming part of the now what? UCD architecture summer school during July and August 2009. The aim of the workshop is to explore the changing interaction of time, light and space through the medium of digital photography, using the contemporary Irish town as its subject.

Stage One of the workshop takes place in Westport Co. Mayo. We plan to invade the town of Westport and record it from dawn to dusk of a single day. Workshoppers will gather photographic raw material which will form the basis of a final piece of work to produced in the second stage.

Stage Two of the workshop will follow, two weeks later, in Dublin. Using digital manipulative techniques the raw images will be refined into a final piece of work.
