Huge, dreamy infrared photos of Cork will be appearing in your neighbourhood soon
These will be an absolute delight.
City neighbourhoods will be treated to a pop of colour to see out the summer as a beautiful city-wide photo exhibition takes over advertising billboards all over town.
Looking Glass by Ror Conaty will span Cork City for a period of two weeks, occupying 53 billboards spread across 16 locations.
Working in collaboration with Al Dalton of creative design and advertising studio Notes to Cork, Looking Glass will transform the city into a giant gallery from August 20th – September 3rd, 2022.
Using infrared photography, the exhibition aims to “expose the beauty hidden just outside of our visual spectrum, giving people the unique opportunity to compare our waking reality with that which lies just beyond our senses, accenting the presence of overlooked nature cohabiting our urban spaces and amplifying the endurance of the natural world”.
Taking it’s name from the novel Alice Through the Looking Glass, where the protagonist Alice travelled through her mirror to a fantastical inversion of her world, Ror says that Looking Glass will give viewers a new appreciation of the everyday spaces they inhabit.
“Post-exhibition the audience will be left with the memory of this vantage point, recalling it each time they travel through a location, recollecting the beauty they saw exposed through a conventional advertising space,” he told us.
