For this online work Clíona has created an audiovisual piece that incorporates colour, light and sound to enhance the feeling of calm. This is a minimal piece inspired by the natural therapeutic elements that surrounds us, including sun rise and birdsong recorded from the dawn chorus. She draws connections between particular visual and aural experiences and the calming states that can occur. The piece is designed to be used with a pair of over-ear headphones in a relaxing setting. Clíona’s was artist in residence in Clonskeagh CNU 2019, as part of Age & Opportunity's Artist in Residence in a Care Setting initiative. The residency focused on multi-sensory environments in dementia care, creating an immersive and interactive multi-sensory space for the residents at Clonskeagh. The Artist in Residence in a Care Setting initiative was funded by Creative Ireland, the HSE and the Arts Council.
