November 2012 (archived post)

I was invited to participate in Bridging Sound, co-organised by Profs Sally-Jane Norman and Michael Bull at University of Sussex.  I talked about the use of sound in my earlier projects (Border Country, Homes and Gardens) and also my new work The Home Front (no literal sound; but there is sound within the images). There were some great papers. I could relate particularly to the presentation given by Angus Carlyle and Rupert Cox about their project Air Pressure, which focuses on noise pollution by aircraft in Japan, and its effect on a farming community living right next a runway.
