Limits to Growth

Research output: Non-textual formPerformance


A ‘sonic parasite’ installation developed with Martin Parker for the Gap in the Air festival at the Talbot Rice Gallery in 2015.

It feeds off its surrounding auditory environment in order to make itself heard. Over the course of its infestation, its relationship to the environment changes. Interventions from invited artists, gallery staff, passing traffic and its own voice see the work ‘mature’ in situ, establishing a niche.

The piece develops from something closed to something structurally coupled to the environment, where behaviours and transformations of sound are themselves driven by what it ‘hears’.
