Dublin A Microworld
Casey Walsh & Natalia Sikora
We both arrived in Dublin for different reasons at different stages of our lives. We both struggled to navigate this overwhelming new place that seemed to be a world of its own…a microworld. ‘Dublin A Microworld’ was born out of an effort to connect with Dublin as a space and to encapsulate all of its essence.
Reaching out to our fellow youths, we presented an open-ended question that simply asked: “Which photograph best represents your experience of Dublin?” This resulted in an array of contrasting images, often showing a broad spectrum of vulnerabilities. The experiences of Dublin varied from student accommodation to sunsets, back gardens, city scenes, and private moments with loved ones.
This project allowed us to rediscover Dublin through the lens of others. As a result we have finally formed a connection with Dublin as a place and as a community. We finally feel at home.
