Untitled (sound installation)
Hidden sound installation
2008 - 2009
At Margate Rocks Festival and Crate Space
Speakers hidden in wall cavities in a crumbling old building quietly filled the location with the swirling sound of stormy wind. The wind whirled up fireplaces and whistled through holes, attempting to subtly alter the viewers experience within the space.
The intervention, set at a low volume, would often only becomes apparent when the visitor left the building - walking back out into the sunshine on the seafront where the atmosphere would lifted and reveal the false soundscape indoors.
This site-specific work was created for 'Margate Rocks', a group exhibition spanning a number of disused buildings in the seaside town, each work commenting on environmental concerns. It was later exhibited in the exhibition AlTurnertive at Crate Space in Margate, Kent.

Margate Rocks 2008
Festival of Contemporary Visual Art
2-11 May 2008
Sited in and around the budding seaside town of Margate, Margate Rocks 08 invites you to the seaside to join in the debate about the state of our planet by exploring the relationship between art and ecology. Drawing on the glorious, hotchpotch backdrop of Margate, a selection of emerging and established international artists, curators, filmmakers, writers, critics and scientists have been invited to comment on the realities of our planet’s ecological urgencies, and art’s relationship to them. The programme explores the relationship between art and ecology through a programme of art commissions, exhibitions, workshops, talks, films, and music.
