What is that noise?    12 - 27 May 2018

A new commission from the Horsebridge Arts Centre with an Arts Council England, this is a sound installation for the Why do you never speak?  project  the Horsebridge, Whitstable.

 

The piece is inspired by T.S. Eliot's poem The Waste Land and my time spent in the Journeys with The Waste Land research group at the Turner Contemporary, Margate.

education

I trained in fine art painting, which has a tradition of d.i.y. practice that has carried on throughout my career.

My experience of attending a Quaker secondary school has finally brought me to working with sound, image and silence.

I am cautious of nostalgia, including nostalgia for analogue technologies and I have embraced the digital.

I have sought out training and worked to acquire the skills to record, photograph, digitally manipulate, edit, master and produce my sound, film and internet works myself.

internet projects

 

darkarchive is in development. It is conceived as a sound and image internet piece. It will be both a website and podcast that act as a factional platform for the dissemination of digital sound and image artwork through these preexisting broadcast platforms.

 

 

photisms is a changing single screen web-page sound and image work. The short durational pieces confound expectation in small ways and explore some of the cliches in the languages of Film and the Gallery.

 

involuntary memory is the web space that hosted the durational and temporary segments of my final MA sound and image work. The space now hosts the sound element of that work.
