Phragmites australis / Paragon Studios Project Space (PS2)
10″ sound on loop (headphones), text / accelerometer, 4 speakers
Phragmites australis resulted from a durational exploration of a part of the river towpath in the Lagan Meadows Reserve, Belfast. It is not far from my house. I have consistently recorded this location over the course of six months, from November 2011 to May 2012, with three main intentions: firstly, to articulate the experience of place through sound; secondly, to understand if I could reveal the landscape changing over time through sound, by exploring the materiality of a small element in the landscape; and lastly,how to negotiate the project’ materials in their final presentation, making the site of recording and the site of presentation inextricably linked.
Residency at Paragon Project Studio Project (Ps2), Belfast, June 2016
