Ireland’s second tallest building and Dublin’s tallest gets rigged up with 100,000 LED’s turning it into what is basically and 50 metre low-res telly.
Running from 24th of September to 11th of October as part of the Dublin Theatre Festival, ‘Playhouse’ is part inspired by the 2003 Blinkenlights installation in Berlin but has been worked on by a team based in Trinity College’s Science Gallery who have spent the past few years trying to make it happen and are now seeing their idea come to fruition.
But the best part of the idea is that they have invited the public to design their own animations on the Playhouse Website. You just download a simple programme, work away on it, submit to them and they will endeavour to play it as much as possible.
They have a strict ‘no willys’ policy though. Shame.
