The Mayo Way

The Mayo Way is an interactive art sculpture installation which will be located outside Áras an Contae. It can be viewed by the passing traffic and pedestrians. The wooden structure will be built in the shape of a capital “M” when view from above. It will also feature an array of imagery (people and places) that symbolise the identity of Mayo, both past and present. This mobile structure can be folded up and stored away for convenience. Additionally, it can find a different location each year.

Features:

  • The scale of the sculpture is 5 feet in height, and approximately 22 feet in length and 9 feet in depth. 1.5metres (H) x 6.7metres (L) x 2.7metres (D) This makes the sculpture much smaller than the original design.
  • Heavy duty castor wheels allow for easy transportation to various locations.
  • A series of hinges, handles, straps and clips will hold the sheets in place when static and mobile.
  • Clamps will keep the structure from moving once it position is set.
  • A flag will drape down from the mast (view image) with information.
  • Information about the work will also be painted onto the sculpture piece.
