A Lament for the Future – Ireland through Neo-Liberal Eyes


Dorone Paris

Audio-visual composition


The work is an audio-visual installation that comments on the Irish economic and political philosophy from the 1990’s, the rise of the ‘Celtic Tiger’, until today. The theme of the piece was inspired by the interviews Noa Treister and I conducted with people across Ireland, ranging in age, gender and class.  The piece explores the ties between neo-liberalism and the abandonment of Northern Ireland, and will bring to light the mass indoctrination into a culture of distraction whereby a small tv screen will show content from the interviews, which is overlaid with audio & visual samples played through a speaker.
