My Home by the Sea

Ard Scoil na nDéise • Group

“My Home by the Sea” is an installation of paper lantern sculpture which have been influenced by the inspirational well known song “Dungarvan My Hometown”. This group piece created by a group of students aged 12 - 17 have taken the words of this songs to construct paper lantern sculptures that reflect sentences in this song. The sculptures illuminated at night capture the magic and the sense of “my home by the sea”. Consisting of fishing boats, maritime creatures, and the figures which represent ‘dear ole faces and places’, this group piece is truly nostalgic and evokes the community spirit which inspired us to make this.
