On Sonic Violence Below (2023)

Multi-channel video, binaural sound, 5 minutes

On Sonic Violence Below is a sonic narrative which examines the issue of noise pollution through the lens of non-humans underwater. Drawing on theory from Alexis Pauline Gumbs, Donna Haraway, and Pauline Oliveros, this project seeks to use acoustic ecology to open up emergent possibilities for interspecies intimacy and care.

Using hydrophone recordings from in and around London, audiences are immersed in an underwater soundscape which gestures at our intimate entanglements with more-than-human life.

Field recordings in collaboration with Yeonju Sun and Katherine Ogden-Newton.
