WallWalks is the latest urban project for the studio and is providing a springboard for a series of products based on the work. Here, carefully chosen words or phrases blaze in large, white letters on wild, damson canvasses. Phase One shows the words HELLO, CONNECT, BELIEVE, CREATE, EMBRACE, BE YOU, HURT and LOVE link Dublin’s Dart line. On-line conversations through FB, Twitter and other social media remind travellers that they need never be alone.

The WallWalks project was launched with an installation in Blackrock – another “container of soul” – where visitors were invited to experience themselves in the here-and-now (“Present”). Max Ablitzer provided his exquisite, haunting music to play outside and inside the work, inviting visitors to the gallery on Blackrock’s Main Street. Here they discovered a moody, scented theatre-space, sealed in darkness, with only a thin strip of light to the outside. Read more on Independent.ie Video below.
Phase Two of WallWalks is taking the studio to walls in secondary schools, promoting and creating awareness around mental health.
