The UK and Ireland's Largest Land Art Portrait
Titanic Quarter, Belfast
by Jorge Rodriguez-Gerada
For the 2013 Ulster Bank Belfast Festival at Queen's internationally acclaimed Cuban-American Artist, Jorge Rodriguez-Gerada has created WISH, a portrait of an anonymous local girl photographed by the artist in the process of making a pure and simple wish for the future.
Spanning an 11acre site in Belfast's Titanic Quarter, the photographic image of this girl - made of topsoil sand, grass and stones - can be seen from various locations around Belfast (the higher the better!) and serves as a unique perspective on the city for those arriving by plane until December 2013.
