We are two visual artists working on a joint project entitled ‘Power Structures’, which involves the photographing of a temporary sculpture in different loci of power. We are interested in aspects of power in its many manifestations.We have constructed a modular Sierpinski pyramid as a symbol of a hierarchical structure, i.e. many components on the lower layer, proportionally fewer on the layer above and so on rising to a single apex.
We have been photographing it with various recognisable institutions or agencies of power and influence, be they political, financial, religious, infrastructural or social. It is our intention to elicit in our audience a questioning of the nature, distribution and formation of power in society. We took this at 4pm outside Nama’s headquarters in Treasury Building, Dublin.
