The Voiced project took the form of a traditional artist residency, providing a space for writers to explore the cultural heritage of this part of East London through song and spoken text.
Commissioned writers include – Lucy Cash, David Nash, James Nixon, Stick In The Wheel and Sarah Westcott. Throughout the residency writers explored a variety of themes including the nature of soil, the interaction with seasons, botany, past and contemporary history.
The residency has resulted in a series of poems, prose and songs exploring the science and mythology of the site. This collection of works will be presented as an immersive five-part sound installation titled Voiced, embedded amongst the trees, undergrowth and ruins of the Reserve.
Exhibition dates: May 7th – September 3rd, 2016.
Times: Saturday 11am – 6pm
What can you see? is a sound installation that begins with a question posed in various public spaces and uses recorded voicemail messages from the public as a basis to create a fictional space. I collect all recordings together and play back the audio to reveal the different perceptions and values people have about the area they're in.
