EVERY SQUARE METER EVERY HOUR by David Haughey

St Augustine's Old School House, Palace Street, Derry

WILD TULIPS presents Every Square Meter Every Hour, a projected simulation that recreates the interior of the C9TV studio on Spencer Road in Derry. Through careful photographic documentation, digital measuring and modelling, the work solidifies a transitory moment in the lifecycle of this unique building.

Channel 9 was an ambitious project to broadcast local current affairs and interests. A fragmentary view of the television station’s development is available online through blogs, news and journal articles; these trace the rise and collapse of C9TV from 1996 to 2009.

This work considers the promise and diminishing status of broadcast media and shifting labour conditions in the wake of new digital technologies and media environments.
This project has been supported by ACNI and Future Screens NI.

WILD TULIPS is an artist-led initiative. WILD TULIPS commissions new work from artists based in the North West of Ireland and supports the arts ecology of Northern Ireland.
