The Poetry Project

The Poetry Project is a brilliant online endeavour by Gemma Tipton which pairs Irish poets with visual artists who then create videos in response to the chosen poems.

I worked on Colm Breathnach's poem 'An Gra'. The Poetry Project is funded by Ireland's hosting of the EU Presidency and every week a new video is added to the site.

Sinead Ni Bhroin produced the film together with her fantastic team at Still Films. We previously worked together on 'The Swimmer' which was commissioned by Dublin's Science Gallery.

Paul Noonan (together with Lisa Hannigan on vocals) kindly allowed me to use his song Some Surprise as the soundtrack to the video.
