Boundary commissionTo facilitate development, a temporary perimeter hoarding is erected around land at Church Street, Bow Street and Hammond Lane in Dublin.‘In the interests of visual amenity’ the OPW* commissions a wallpaper along the site boundaries. We had made something similar at the Central Bank Plaza. We offer an opened book set in a forest with observations on circularity. This is a joyous celebration of the circle for a circular site written, or collaged, in early morning conversations (more fun!). Mirroring, perhaps, the everyday trajectory of the commuter and the celestial presence of the cosmonaut looking down from above, it binds together commonplace images in less common pairings as the pages of a fictitious book.Although intended to be periodically maintained, with damaged posters pasted over by fresh copies, there was no upkeep. Within seven days only shreds of the wallpaper remained.
