The installation, called The Volunteers, is backed by Senator Lynn Ruane and Senator Aodhán Ó Ríordáin to coincide with their Controlled Drugs and Harm Reduction Bill 2017 currently being debated in the Seanad.

Gabriel Dawe is one of nine artists commissioned to create ‘room sized’ works for the Smithsonian’s Renwick Gallery in Washington this year.

This 5.8m hight work, stretching from the floor to the ceiling of the gallery and entitled ‘Plexus A1’, uses  9.7 kilometers of polyester sewing thread in 15 colours to represent the full spectrum of visible light.

Now for you.
