10-Minute Site-Specific Performance at Fort Dunree, Donegal, Ireland.

After encountering a pack of cards strewn across the floor of a bunker at Irish Historical site, Fort Dunree, I created a performance in which I appear to be playing an esoteric game using playing cards and mirrors, staged on the foundations of a burnt down Officers' Mess . The viewer is left to wonder; Is this ritualistic, a magic trick, a kind of summoning, or am I gambling something with an unseen opponent? A Performance Film version of this work is currently in progress.
