Irish Web Awards 09 is on!


The superbly awesome Irish Web Awards are happening on October 10th at the lovely Radisson SAS on Golden Lane, Dubln 2. They’re on Twitter n all!

Although I’ll probably be murdered, thanks @IrishWebAwards for re-introducing me to someone awesome at #iwa08 that I now love lots like Jelly Tots.

It’s gonna rock :)

Ooh look, nominations now open at http://awards.ie/webawards/nominations/

Playhouse – Daft.ie get funky with Liberty Hall

The blurb goes like this:

“We will turn Dublin’s tallest building into a giant public canvas—and we want you to play with it. Our simple tools allow you to animate your thoughts and broadcast them on the city skyline.”

Today’s article in the Irish Indo says that 330 windows combined with some sophisticated LED lighting will turn Liberty Hall into a huge, electronic canvas as part of the Dublin Theatre Festival which runs from September 24th to October 11th.

Sounds wicked, and I’m loving the really cute n sexy website. Full info will be available on August 24th according to the www.daft.ie/playhouse page. In the meantime you can keep tabs on developments via Twitter, Facebook, Vimeo and Flickr.

My thanks to Jen for sharing this article on the amazing work of Li Wei. It’s performance art meets photography and I love it. Excerpt from the article

After dropping out of art school and dabbling in oil painting, Li decided to focus on action art because, as he puts it, only it “offers a chance to experience an action’s message through one’s own body.”
