Odds and Ends – 07 Sept 2015

Just finished my first week of field recordings.

This was frosh week, so the sounds are of 1,500 first year students joining the madness of their next stage of life. It is an experience you never forget, and one that is very hard to appreciate without having gone through it.

You can see it in the faces of the parents. There are knowing smiles from parents who remember their school days, panic and fear in others.

In my day, things will very much ad hoc compared to the huge amount of institutional support that student organizers get today.

So, this round of field recordings are dominated by frosh activities. As a baseline for my project, I should have started back in June, when the campus was relatively calm. Oh well. That’s part of the learning process.

Inspired by architecture and landscapes, my art explores our relationship to place, memory and identity. As a mid career artist, my art practice includes: painting, murals, short films, and sound art.
