Creative Campus ’19 artists and curators are based in County Library, Tallaght and this year our creative exploration is the interface between the interior of the library and the exterior of Chamber Square.
We are investigating and exploring the interior/exterior spaces and the possible interfaces between them. Using location mapping and spatial programming, our artists are seeking to understand the existing spaces. Through analysis, exploration, research and testing they will propose a series of interventions.
