A project in collaboration with Artist Colm Weakliam, we set out to create a place to gather and meet in the sprawling festival site, a set of billboards above two benches sit amongst the fruit trees, respectively oriented towards the rising and setting sun on the longest day of the year.
On the 'billboard' behind each bench, a vibrant image provides a strong contrast to the substructure beneath. Our hope that the alchemy of art and architecture could make a focal point within the walled garden where people could meet and mingle, having a drink, discussing the music and art.
