    Cork Ignite - Cork City Centre Audience
 

Cork Ignite was Simon McKeowns most ambitious Live Art project to date. It played out to an audience of thousands in the City of Cork on the evening of September 15th as the culminating event of Cork Culture Night 2015. 8-10,000 people of all ages attended. The work has since featured in documentaries, promos and academic review.  

During April 2016 McKeown launched Trace Elements,  a solo exhibition at the Foundation for Arts and Creative Technology (FACT) in Liverpool, UK, which detailed Cork Ignite.
