'Portal' between New York and Dublin was closed due to the ridiculous and vulgar behavior of passers-by

Recently between New York and Dublin opened a “portal”, which broadcast the life of cities in real time. But he did not work for long. According to New York Post, it was closed due to the inappropriate and depraved behavior of passers-by.

The interactive art installation opened last Wednesday, May 8, to loud applause, but soon devolved into a chaotic cesspool that largely emanated from the Irish side.

Among the terrifying antics of foreigners on the other side of the “portal” was a man who showed an image of the plane that flew into one of the Twin Towers on September 11, and a “wise guy” who showed a swastika on his phone.

But the New York side was not flawless either. The OnlyFans model posted a video for her 400 Instagram followers showing off her breasts to the Dublin side.

Not for long the music played

The project was created as a “bridge to a single planet” that would allow passers-by to see each other across thousands of kilometers. “Portal” was closed on the evening of May 14. Organizers Flatiron NoMad Partnership said staff will work to minimize disruptive behavior.

“Instances of inappropriate behavior originated from a very small minority of portal visitors and were widely circulated on social media,” they noted.

In New York City, a number of protocols have been in place since the launch of the interactive art installation, including 24-hour security on site and barriers to prevent people from setting foot on the “portal.” The team in New York and partners in Dublin are working on additional solutions to curb this behavior.

Absurd, but expected

Many residents were disappointed by the closure of this interactive art installation, as it is truly an unusual and delightful invention. But New Yorkers were not at all surprised by the depraved behavior.

“Anything that is open to the public means you can do whatever you want,” said one passerby. “It’s only a matter of time before they start using it inappropriately.” To be honest, this is quite expected.”

The organizers are going to close the “portal” late at night in order to minimize the absurd actions of citizens.

The attraction attracted tens of thousands of visitors in its first week and generated more than a billion reactions online, according to the Flatiron NoMad Partnership.

“The vast majority of visitors to the 'portal' behaved appropriately and experienced the sense of joy and unity that this piece of public art encourages people to experience,” organizers said.
