Kilkenny Animated Opening Night Party: The Irish Premiere of the Eye of the Dream

Castlecomer Discovery Park

Game designer and artist David OReilly brings his immersive Eye of the Dream projection: a fusion of imagination, technology and science to Castlecomer’s Discovery Dome in Kilkenny this October. In under two hours, viewers experienced different moments in the history of the universe, told through OReilly’s visual narrative and aesthetic experimentation.

Spiralling constantly towards visitors in a covered dome, is a quasi-kaleidoscope vision of small, recognizable animated objects that begin close together and swirl out. The little icons represent points in time from the Big Bang until the present, including everything from rabbits and stones, to carriages, strawberries, street signs and umbrellas.

Followed by an interview by Tomm Moore.

This event is co-hosted by The Irish Film and Television Academy, IFTA
