2008: Outpost Members Show

Blind Hearing and Audio Measurements

Outpost Members Show selected by Andrew Hunt

Saturday 20th December 2008

I presented a new stereo audio guide specifically for the show, describing and navigating the space using sound alone. I avoided any descriptions of the visual qualities of the space because I wanted the piece to refer to audio guides for the blind, where objects and spaces are treated as physical things rather than observable things. The piece consists of a binaural recording made during the private view, layered with a Text Edit voice guiding the participant around the building.
