Three Rock Mountain Study
An experiment in hospitality, developed for the Hack the City festival open call at Science Gallery, October 2012. Hack the City called for artists to consider ways to interrogate and provoke existing city structures. I proposed to Science Gallery that visiting artists coming to Dublin to participate in the show ought to be offered the opportunity to stay with a selected host while they worked in the city, rather than in rented accommodation, hostels or hotels.
Hosts were selected through an open call process, and linked with visiting artists through common interests. A weekly reading group in Dublin supported this project, entitled On Hospitality, and a series of shared meals organised for those involved. Hosts, artists, and others they had met or collaborated with over the period of Hack the City were invited to meals for 70 + guests, held in Supafast, an artist run space in Dublin city centre.
