about:blank is what appears when there is nothing else to display. It exists in the space between the internet and you. From here we depart. 

Adam Wyeth’s forthcoming collection (Salmon Sep. ’21) has recently been turned into a site-responsive, audio-immersive series of interconnected narratives you engage with on your phone and bring into the world around you.

The collaboration of about:blank started during the first lockdown of 2020 and was made entirely in isolation. Now for the first time, Cashel Arts Festival brings the team together to talk about the making of the work in this special panel discussion. This is their first time in a room together and many of them are meeting for the first time in person. Hosted by poet and dramaturg Jessica Traynor, the programme will also include extracts from about:blank ahead of its Dublin Theatre Festival Premiere. 

This discussion is in association with Cashel Arts Festival.
