Weight and Sound

A couple of weeks ago I was asked by a group of artists if they could use some of my artwork for a project they are involved in at the Arches, Glasgow.

I have met with them a number of times, and am pleased to announce that Urban Space IIII will be featured in Sound Thought next week.

Here is how they describe the project:

WEIGHT AND SOUND

A collaborative project initiated by Emily Shepherd in conversation with Thomas Leyland Collins, Fiona Teresa Keenan, Benjamin Parkes, Amy Pickles, Adam Scarborough and Alison Joan Stockwell
Featuring work by Ragnar Jonasson, Helen Shaddock and Alison Joan Stockwell

How can we disseminate sculpture through sound?
What does this bring to our experience of sculpture?

Weight and Sound seeks to investigate these questions, not to arrive at a definitive conclusion but to open up this idea as a line of enquiry, an interpretative tool for discussing sculpture.

Through considering an object’s spatial and material qualities and interpreting these through sound, the project emerges as an alternative to traditional methods of interpreting sculpture, creating sound accompaniments which serve to enhance the viewer’s experience and offer new avenues of exploration.

The exhibition at the Arches serves to document and demonstrate this conversation through a visual map of our enquiry.


Object as sound. Sound as mass. Weight and Sound.
