Sound and video production, developed whilst exploring interests in history, geography and ethnography and, thereafter, the relationship that each has with storytelling.

Exhibitions with sound
‘Genia!’, says Marauder (2019) included a video, displayed on a gaming monitor, showing mounted photographic slides during their insertion into, and extraction from, a slide viewer. Furthermore, two speakers reverberated the sound of each slide hitting the interior of the viewer.
A slide projector also displayed the photographic slides, albeit in their original form. At the same time a microphone, attached to the projector’s body and connected to a single speaker, amplified the whirring sound of nostalgic analogue mechanics.
Muscle Damage. An artwork that, above all, was created in collaboration with the artist’s father, Gordon Taylor, in 2017. The work used voiceover as well as binaural sound as points of focus. Digital copies of slide photography, taken by both collaborators and edited for monitor display, created an interchange between auditory perception and imagery.
As shown below the artwork also included related objects for the audience to encounter throughout a physical setting.
