Self Rescue Mechanism, 1998

Self-Rescue Mechanism was a collaboration between Jim Dingilian in New York and Alan Phelan in Dublin, exhibited at Arthouse, Dublin; The Art Exchange Show, New York; and EV+A 98, Limerick. The project was accompanied by a website which encapsulated the ideas explored by the artists through text, sculpture, interactive media, and installations.

The index page brings you to a series of black pages which are the entry points to stories, chat scripts, plans, and pictures.

The chat button at the top of most pages brings you to a bulletin board where new stories, ideas and comments were posted in preparation and delivery of the project.
