‘Soft Path’ Water Harvest
‘New Sites, New Fields’ research project and exhibition, Leitrim Sculpture Center, Manorhamilton, Co Leitrim Curated by Sean O’Reilly.
‘Soft Path’ Water Harvest is a series of interventions into a disused limestone quarry at Largy in the Glenade Valley and a collaborative drawing between the artist and Land Surveyor Malcolm Gerry that employs analogue and GPS digital systems to map the physical location, topographical features and interventions at the site.
’Soft Path’ imagines a possible re use for the ‘waste place’ quarry site using low tech rain water harvesting mechanisms that employ recycled building materials to collect and store rain water from the quarry face.
