Day two recce Dublin
So I met Mia and we clicked as a snap lock rivet and within a couple of hours had agreed that her novel HellFire (Penguin Ireland, 2006) would be the source of text for the sonic bike piece. It’s vivid and brilliant and extracting the right bits seems straightforward. The tricky bit as ever, is pulling the areas I’ve started to map into a cycleable quantity from the Science Gallery where the piece will begin.
Plus I continue to discover other things that just have to be in. For example …
Eagle aged 17. His stables down an alley between a street of antique shops and another of bars and markets and living independant family traders, only one fancy coffee bar in site. O and Hellfire’s heroine’s Dad lived here.
