Stadiums & Shrines
Dreams of Ireland


Boats slowly migrate past her, symmetrically toward the southern bank of the River Liffey. Lamps skirt the perimeter. A well-dressed commotion populates the promenade. She stops and turns, tracing what shifts behind…

The drawbridge lifts and the vista splits, inverting the town’s grandeur with the fanciful edge of the riverside. The Round Tower’s nest invades peppermint hills. The diamond-shaped fleet crosses the pleat.

A rare tableau in her periphery: reflections wave to one another, necklaces dangle rightside down, a policeman drops a cigar to the fire chief, a cyclist recognizes his counterpart coasting casually against the grade.


White Poppy is Vancouver-based multimedia artist and therapeutically-minded musician Crystal Dorval. Last month her self-titled LP was released through Not Not Fun, and last week she droned with us at Silent Barn.

Dreams is an ongoing project where we ask our favorite artists to create a piece of music inspired by a handmade collage.
