Sarah Jane Shiels

When darkness falls, from 11-13 June Lighting Designer Sarah Jane Shiels creates a temporary jaw-dropping lighting installation on the exterior of the main stack of the former Braun ‘Machine Room’. Machine Room Exterior seeks to deconstruct the modernist design of the iconic former Braun building, rejuvenating its presence on the Carlow landscape.
