Dairbhre: One Walk

Tags: 
Description (in English): 

Dairbhre is a lyric poetry project about attempting to know a desired place by walking the roads of that place in that place, in memory, and most accessibly/obsessively, in Google Street View. There are many walks. “One Walk,” a poem in 7 sections, goes from Knightstown to a specific house in Upper Tinnies on Valentia Island. Although the project is intended to be about place and displacement, it manifests currently as being about metaphor, a form of transport I find particularly challenging. And they’re all challenging. The poem is composed primarily in Google Street View, but also on the actual road, and allowing memory. Its intended form is audio-visual recording but at the ELO, I will simply read several sections, without the video
