Stuck in city traffic? Turn your head and you may find yourself immersed in a near-future Galway. City walls and shop windows become backdrops for photo-montages by Joe Lee visualising life in an inundated city, when yet another abnormal has become commonplace. Set against familiar Galway views utterly changed by sea-level rising and floods, they incorporate images of Galwegians in designs by Irish and Palestinian artists that imagine how we might cope with this enormous and imminent change.
