Investigate Infrastructure: See and Hear What Makes the City Work!

08 — 10 July 2021, 11am - 3pm

TBG+S studio artist David Beattie creates a series of sonic and material explorations of the Temple Bar area presenting a number of ways to engage and interact with the locality.

There will be opportunities to listen to the urban environment, to discover sounds and listening experiences, not immediately recognisable. You will also be invited to take relief rubbings from pre-determined points in the area, using paper, crayons and pencils to transcribe and see the material form of the buildings, footpaths and infrastructure in a new way.

How to Participate Outdoors

Join us at Temple Bar Gallery + Studios where there will be free art-making materials at our workstations, or take an art pack away. Explore Temple Bar and make your own art. Art packs will be available to collect and take home should the weather not allow outdoor art-making.

David Beattie has designed a project and map, materials will be provided at the gallery where you can make your own listening device and take a walk through Temple Bar to listen to the sounds of the city working, taking rubbings along the way.
