Livestream Portal Reopens in Dublin and New York Following Lewd Behavior

On Tuesday, May 14 a large portal that livestreams between Dublin’s city center and New York’s Flatiron district was shut down due to lewd behavior. The art installation returned again on Sunday, reported the New York Times.

Visitors on both sides are to blame for the video’s removal. Videos on social media captured an OnlyFans model lifting her shirt in New York, while people in Dublin displayed swastikas and images of the September 11 attack on the World Trade Center.

The portal reportedly attracted thousands, and aimed to expand creative boundaries and connectivity. The artistic experiment remains in place, but now with greater restrictions. In New York, it will be open from 6 am to 4 pm; and in Dublin from 11 am to 9 pm.

In Dublin, there will also be two portal ambassadors on either side of the installation in yellow neon jackets to deter bad behavior. Additionally, stepping to close to the camera will blur the livestream in both Dublin and New York.

Other portal installations connect Lublin, Poland with Vilnius, Lithuania.

This is not the first project of its kind. In 2008, a 12-foot art installation known as the “Telectroscope” connected New York and London.
