Structured: Sound Mirrors

Research output: Non-Textual OutputExhibition


8 etchings, titled sound mirrors exhibited as part of a curated exhibition.
Sound Mirrors is a continuum of thematics around the Sound Mirrors at Denge near Dungeness, these are giant concrete structures hidden in a desolate and austere landscape. A couple times a year the public can visit to experience the sculptural structures. These mirrors are the birth of radar: concrete listening ears invented to aid the early warning of enemy planes, eventually replaced by radar and rendered defunct. Constructed between 1920 and 1930
Sound Mirrors talks of conversations lost, of people lost, of conversations never begun, of things we wished we’d said. Elusive ghosts and deep seated memories are brought into being. The imagery is part in-memoriam, part remapping. I use the term mapping not in the sense of a literal cartography but rather as a feeling and emotional connection with place. The prints began with the Sound Mirrors but are not representative of nor mimicking the shape of the structures.
