The notorious video portal, which allowed people in New York and Dublin to converse in real time, has reopened, albeit with some alterations.

The portal has a huge circular screen that displays video from a camera on a secondary screen in another location.

While the screen is not a genuine portal, it is designed to look like it can be stepped through in the city centers of New York and Dublin. founder Benediktas Gylys explained the concept behind the art project, saying: “Portals are an invitation to meet people across boundaries and divisions and to experience our planet as it truly is – unified and one.

“The livestream provides a window between distant locations, allowing people to meet outside of their social circles and cultures, transcend geographical boundaries, and embrace the beauty of global interconnectedness.”

However, the portal was briefly closed last week as events took a bad turn.

For example, some Dublin residents displayed images of the 9/11 attacks in New York, while others displayed various body parts.

Meanwhile, other participants were seen on tape apparently using drugs, and some took advantage of the situation to taunt passersby.

An OnlyFans model in New York also became viral after she flashed her breasts at the camera, which earned her some money.

On Tuesday (May 14), Dublin City Council announced that it would close the gateway owing to ‘inappropriate behavior by a small percentage of persons’.

Fortunately, for those who want to play by the rules, the portal has been reopened.

The installation’s organizers in both cities have now installed a ‘proximity-based solution’ that will prohibit people from walking through the portals and bringing their phones up to the cameras.

According to organizers, doing so will cause the livestream to blur on both sides.

Fencing and spacing decals have also been added to the NY gateway.

Gylys said in a statement on Sunday (May 19) that “as humans, we are creating the Portals experience together.”

“I invite local communities not only to enjoy but to care about their Portals and how other community members are approaching the sculptures.”

The portal in New York is located on the Flatiron South Public Plaza at Broadway, Fifth Avenue, and 23rd Street, which is one of the city’s busiest junctions.

The Dublin portal is located at the confluence of O’Connell Street and North Earl Street.

John Plummer, who visited Dublin from Drogheda in County Louth, is among those who have used the portal thus far.

He told the BBC, “It’s amazing.” It’s fantastic to see something like this in the city and to be able to observe people going about their business in New York while we’re standing here in the heart of Dublin.”

So, if you intend to visit either portal anytime soon, be on your best behavior.
