Twestion Time: Liffey 'Desert island' artist Fergal McCarthy

One man has taken to living on an island in the River Liffey as part of the ABSOLUT Fringe Festival 2011 – here’s the quickfire interview TheJournal.ie carried out with him on Twitter today…

EVER WANT TO take yourself off to a desert island? Sure, says you – but a desert island in the middle of the Liffey? Not so much in these chill winds.

It hasn’t deterred Fergal McCarthy from his piece of installation/performance art No Man’s Land in which he is living on a manmade island in the middle of the capital’s main waterway as part of the ABSOLUT Fringe Festival 2011. You can see the photos of the project here.

He might be living on his own for ten days – but he does have access to a solar-powered smartphone. (He’s even blogging on his own website here).

We fired ten questions at him this lunchtime to find out how he’s getting on with passing seals and herons, almost falling off the edge – and why he’s not going doolally. You can find Fergal at @FergalMcCarthy1 on Twitter and with the hashtag #nomansland.

It went a little like this:
