“A technology company will be making changes to a livestream portal between Dublin, Ireland, and New York City, following reports of ‘inappropriate behavior,’ according to multiple media outlets. The art technology installations, dubbed ‘The Portal,’ were unveiled in both Dublin and New York City less than a week ago, creating an ‘unprecedented bridge,’ between the two cities, according to the Dublin City Council. Both portals run a 24/7 livestream from the other city, allowing visitors to interact with one another in real-time. … Clips on social media showed people in Dublin flashing body parts, showing pictures of 9/11 and swear words on phone screens, Sky News reported. In one instance, police escorted a woman away after she was seen grinding against the portal, the outlet added.” (05/14/24)
