A livestream portal linking New York City and Dublin, Ireland is back open. The visual art exhibit called "The Portal" features a pair of installations that each have a giant screen and a video camera, one next to the Flatiron Building in New York, and the other in Ireland's capital city. It was shut down last week after people on both sides engaged in offensive behavior. In Dublin, visitors had gotten up close to the camera and held up phones with sickening images of the 9/11 attacks and swastikas. In the Big Apple, a pair of OnlyFans creators flashed their breasts. In addition to new limited hours and guardrails, both screens will now be blurred if a visitor steps on the portal and obstructs the camera, which organizers called a “proximity-based solution.”
