The Inishowen 100 scenic drive gets its name from its approximate distance in miles around the Inishowen peninsula. The 100x100 project gets its name from its approximate number of commissioned artworks featured across the Inishowen 100. This new intervention by Artlink in the Inishowen 100 scenic drive will be an annual project, presented for the first time in 2012.

This body of work, produced over the course of a six-month artist residency at the National Fisheries College in Greencastle, examines the
contradictions and complexities of sustaining the future of a fishing industry that has been at the heart of a community for generations.
The work builds on a foundation that saw the artist train alongside trainee deckhands for over a term at the National Fisheries College. This foundation generated the kind of significant conversations within a community - in this case, a community of trainee, present and former fishermen, and those in the area of the village of Greencastle associated with the industry - that only open up within the sustained commitment of a Residency project. In particular, there were for the artist very formative and significant discussions centered on the sense of waste and fury around the practice of ‘Discards/Bycatch’ imposed upon the fishing industry and the nuanced consideration of concepts such as 'limited resources' and ' sustainability'.
