Grace Weir’s short film Dust defying gravity shows for a limited time in a series of screenings from the collection.

Dust defying gravity (2004) by Grace Weir consists of a single 4-minute tracking shot that traces through the rooms at Dunsink Observatory, Dublin and documents the aging telescopes and measuring instruments that are dispersed throughout the building. As the camera passes over a mechanical model of the solar system, the dust in the air of the room becomes visible, floating, and scintillating like a field of stars.

Grace Weir (b.1962) is a visual artist who works primarily in the moving image and installation. In her work, she focuses on the slippages between the conceptual and experiential in different fields of enquiry. In 2001, she represented Ireland at the 49th Venice Biennale and, from 2012 until 2015, she was Artist-in-Residence in the School of Physics, Trinity College Dublin.
