NomansLanding

No Mans Land refers to the impasse, the place no one dares traverse, the gap of fear and uncertainty between two sides of tentative safety –a memory, a metaphor inherited from the impossible stand off of World War 1 trench warfare.

How can this empty space, this vacuum of devastation be poetically reimagined?

Public Art concepts

Whilst the Sonic Objects; Sonic Architecture site is full of large scale public art and environmental projects they are of course the tip of the iceberg.  Man proposes and God disposes as the saying goes; or in the realm of architectural and public art competitions the final call may not be 100% divine.  So here are some images for public artworks drawn from the proposal process.  Some of these works have been commissioned and built (but these are all in the site anyhow)...

Songs from the UnderWorld

My practice is increasingly focussed upon bringing together the physical and ecological environment together with our social and cultural contexts. Using the media of multichannel sound installation; data-sonification and sonic-cartography these hybrid works are designed to create new forms of sonic space in which it is possible to experience, examine and reflect upon the complexities and consequences of our interactions in an increasingly chaotic world.

Zephyr is playfully named after Zephyrus the Greek god of the gentle west wind ~ a light air that bought spring to the classical world. Despite being described as Mediterranean our climate is considerably...
