30kg

Sound Sculpture, Metal Table / Candle Wax Block / 5.1 Surround Sound,

Exhibited at The Barbican Centre 2017

In July 2017, I was invited to part-take in the Barbican Centres "Open Lab" event. A collective of multi-disciplinary artists were provided with space and resources to develop existing work, create new work and collaborate across platforms. During this workshop I co-created a sound sculpture (30kg) with poet Jack Miguel, which formed part of the closing exhibition.

For this piece we used contact mics to capture the impact of dripping wax and then processed this signal to create an immersive listening environment in 5.1 surround sound.

The melting block of wax was representative of the transformative effect of grief.
