Research / Inspiration:
Locus Sonus

This project is made up from a live audio network from volunteers. The sound of their iving spaces is transmitted to a central hub where it is then distributed as an installation. The audio provided is played out from individual boxes that the visitor can enter allowing them to experience the living space of another place/time.

The project explores how we experience space aurally and how powerfully a schizophonic experience can alter our perception of space. It is also an extremely intrusive step into another person's private space and questions how comfortable we are living in a society with such high levels of surveillance. There is a feeling of discomfort from both ends of the network as the volunteer is completely open to the public and the listener feels that they should not be listeneing to such a private place.
