Natrolite from vug, pillow basalt

Recorded voice, Quicktime screen recording, sound, text, colour, 2015.

Developed with an interest in the lens of a camera being a depository for experience, this work also narratively pushes into research around the phenomenon of pareidolia, looking specifically at the facial features of rocks during a walk at Puck's Glen, Scotland. By combining what is recorded with what is described, and pulling this through low frequency sound used in hearing tests, the work is a playful comment on how we recall the experience of place corporeally and sensually.

The work contains low frequency sound best experienced using good headphones or speakers. It can also be viewed on the online platform and curatorial project At Vanishing Point, developed by Jessica Piette.
