‘To slacken virtue, and abate her edge,
Than tempt her to do aught may merit praise.
PARADISE REGAINED’ iv (De Qunicey)

I discovered a blue tent ( synonymous with the Occupy Movement) it was situated on a patch of grass located in-between CIE bus Garage and a language College called Success College. I became in amoured with the thought that a young man had decided to pitch his tent in this leafy demense only 5 minutes from a very hustling busy City Centre (Dublin). I was intrigued by his retreat within a City enclave, unfortunately when i decided to film this work he had vacated the area and the authorities had slashed his tent, on inspection his tent was strewn with needles and also a book by Carl Jung.

My idea was to situate this tent in a largescale electronic billboard, a return to questioning the power of advertising.
