Artists Claire Hind and Gary Winters were invited to develop a trail between the two sites. They researched the 949 years that passed between the construction of the two towers and created a series of actions and activities including storytelling, dancing and a drawing class on top of Baille Hill.
For the duration of the event the artists resided in the cramped confines of Bitchdaughter Tower, which was at one time a jail cell and also used as a mint. Claire and Gary recited the 949 years text, making note of remarkable and unremarkable (as well as some sneaky fictional) events for each of the 949 years.
