IF YOU THINK art galleries are too precocious, you should set aside time to see "Hall of Mirrors" in Dublin's Farmleigh House.
It's the artwork of Denis Connolly and Anne Cleary. The show's most playful piece is a "dot-film", filled with moving dot people. The work, called "Joining the Dots", uses a Microsoft Kinect camera that tracks and responds to actions that turn the viewer into a projected dot-person.
Critic Christian Leach Hughes writes, "These kinetic human constellations spark thoughts about the portrayal of the human form in art, from the paintings of cavemen to pointillism, Lichenstein's pop art to le Brockquy's human presences."
I'm looking forward to how our four-year-old responds to this exhibition because I think she will personify the metaphor of how art works.
