Scope and Content

A hardback with a grey cover with "Homs" embossed on the front and "Dublin" on the back. This book is a document of a walk taken by the artist from Budapest-Keleti train station to Nickelsdorf on the Austrian border, mirroring the journey taken by over a thousand Syrian refugees in September 2015 after Hungarian authorities refused to allow them to board trains. The book features text including diary entries, official quotes from an Irish passport and a Schengen Visa application form and longitude/latitude coordinates of each place. The book also features colour photographs of the artist walking and views along the way.
This book was part of the artist's degree show in Fine Art Sculpture in NCAD.
