The Big Picture space in Tallaght was an Interactive Information centre intended to showcase the future of South Dublin’s ambitious architectural vision. This development floundered and the utopian vision perpetuated in the space is in stark contrast to the reality.
But the space is still there, with latent potential for new and creative outcomes. Now is the time to reactivate the space and for 3 days and nights, 6 artists are taking over with a series of performances and interactive installations.
Over the 3 days the public were invited for free to take part in this extravaganza of performance, sound, music, interactive instruments, touch screen technologies altered with animations and projections as the Big Picture comes to life by an innovative group of Artist’s who have worked over a period of months the unused and untapped resources of the Big Picture.
