Did You Just Hear That?

Audio installation, 2016

A project which encourages participants to search for sounds, taking direction from audio instructions. Utilising a 13.1 speaking system within a darkened room, participants are asked to use only their hearing in order to detect where the sounds are coming from.

The project draws inspiration from hearing loss and the multiple ways in which sound can be confusing during such an experience. The ability to pinpoint exactly where a sound is coming is often a skill which is easily taken for granted; within this installation, participants are encouraged to explore their own understanding of senses through sound.
