Context/Background Part of Pathway 2: Community-based projects, ‘…the lives we live’ Grangegorman Public Art.

A digital guided walking tour of Stoneybatter, using abstracts of the recorded conversations of local residents gathered over a period of twelve months

One Hour Archive (OHA) is a public art work by Louis Haugh in collaboration wit.h Alice Fitzharris and The Tuesday Club. OHA asked the senior residents of Stonebatter to creatively engage in conversation about the lives they have lived throughout Stoneybatter’s rich social and economic histories.

The artwork takes the form of a digital guided walking tour of Stoneybatter, using abstracts of recorded conversations gathered over a period of twelve months. These abstracts guide listeners around the area, presenting to the public the voices of local residents born and bred in Stoneybatter. The tour highlights areas of interest, amusement and long lost memories while bridging the gap between old and new. This work is available any time.


Pattern Book essay by Nathan O’Donnell




As a graduate of IADT’s BA Photography programme, Louis Haugh is a visual artist working both independently and collaboratively in Dublin with photography, sound, installation and text. Haugh’s work showcases an intimate relationship with people and places, borrowing from photography’s rich history of practice to make visible these otherwise unseen relationships. Haugh’s working methods are both socially and creatively engaged, with each creative process often being connected to a wide gamut of people, places or organisations. As a result, Haugh produces work that is both co-authored and collaboratively made.
