Hidden in Plain Sight - Art in Dublin

Posted: Oct. 18th, 2012  |  By Michael Pearse
Dublin
Irish Times

Dublin's city streets are full of hidden art, which is somewhat of a conundrum considering the pieces aren't meant to be hidden at all; people just don't seem to take the time to look at and take in all the aesthetic opportunities that the Irish city has to offer.

THEREíS NOTHING truly hidden within Dublinís public realm. If itís on the street, itís there to be seen, as long as we give ourselves the chance to look. Busy city streets contain a huge amount of visual information. We filter out details so that weíre not too distracted to get where weíre going.

When something interrupts the filtering, new things pop up on even the most familiar streets. Maybe itís roadworks pushing you out further than usual so you can see the rooftops. Maybe itís sunlight acting like a grand laser pointer. Maybe youíre a passenger, freed from the responsibility of paying attention to the road. Maybe itís a tourist staring up at something for long enough that you follow their gaze.
