The Expanding Realities trip to Spike Island was an opportunity for all the artists to explore travel, mobility, freedom and home; themes that are currently being explored by the GASP artists. They travelled by foot, train and boat to reach the Island that is abundant in culture and with a history of religion and incarceration. It was also an opportunity to experiment together and share some of the project experiences up to that point. Belén Sanchez brought her mobile music machine, Dave Pearse shared poetry, Imna Pavon, Yvonne Condon, Itziar Martín Montes and John Whelan shared some of their dance collaboration, and Derek Foot and Jeff Johns focused on gathering sound recordings for the day.
