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?

My creative practice is increasingly focussed upon bringing together the physical and ecological environments 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...

BeeWork
