Luas Carol - Anne Cleary and Denis Connolly


Luas_Carol1.jpgMultiscreen Video Installation
Year : 2007
Image : Cleary and Connolly
Sound :Jean-Philippe Renoult and DinahBird
In Production

Part of Anne Cleary and Denis Connolly's CityLoops Project Luas Carol is a multi-screen video/sound installation,inspired by Dublinís new tramway, the LUAS. The piece will feature a commissioned soundtrack by Paris based sound artists Dinahbird and Jean Philippe Renoult. Luas means speed, and here the accelerations and decelerations of the streetcar give the key to the treatment of the image and of the sound. 

Luas_Carol2.jpgAnne and Denis use the Luas Red Line, with its evocative names, Fatima, Red Cow, Black Horse.., to shoot a series of dolly shots that are transformed into a play of images sliding over and into each other, and passing from reality to fantasy, from day to night, from winter to summer, from Connolly to Tallaght. 'Luas Carol' is an experimental environment constructed with images and sounds that pass from the concrete to the lyrical, placing the spectator in that tube hurtling through the real world, then allowing him to escape through speed.
