In this episode of Port Stories, Martin Crampin talks to artist Julie Merriman. Julie is one of twelve artists and writers commissioned to work with the project on a series of creative responses to the ports towns. A visual artist, Julie is making a series of mimeograph postcards of all five ports, and explains the background to the images made for Dublin Port, Holyhead and Rosslare. She also talks about her Carlisle Pier Residency at Dún Laoghaire (2006–10), which examined the history of the site and its social, political and psychological links to emigration, and explains the technical processes that underlie her work. More examples of her work can be found on her website and an interview about her work for Carlisle Pier can also be found here.
