Pursuit of Happiness: more information

Specifically created for the off site programme ‘Gallery 3′, Douglas Hyde Gallery, Dublin; Pursuit of Happiness put into play materials drawn from the reference and lending library at The Pearce Street Library. These materials were processed, according to a structure based loosely upon an analysis of borrowing trends and movements of users and workers who pass through various spaces in building. This was then be mapped on to an arbitrary colour field that referenced the book jackets and the immediate locale. This work could then be taken away by the viewers, one page at a time.
