The Peatlands Castletown House

This Immersive Installation explores the ecological treasures that are the peatlands and wetlands of Ireland and amplifies the extraordinary species found within. Combining animated paintings, photography, field recordings, sound sculpture and video into a transmedia essay, narrated through the voice of the natural and built worlds.

Our project manipulates light and space to bring innovative, experimental and collaborative work with the audience. The work is guided by shared concerns with the fragile status of our natural heritage in the face of environmental crisis.
