The group Matterlurgy led workshops in which their members and participants collected artefacts – from stones to discarded plastic items – in South Gare, the site of the now-closed Teesside steelworks in Redcar. This exhibition features those objects, which are part of a future fossil record, and suggest a geological stratum in which nature and technology are combined
From Sensate – A Journal for Critical Media Practice
Between 2011 and 2014 I gathered environmental sound recordings from South Gare, a man-made stretch of land along the North East coast of England. These recordings formed part of a doctoral research project, funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council and undertaken at Creative Research into Sound Arts Practice (CRiSAP), University of the Arts, London.
The final and on-going act of research involved rebroadcasting the collected sounds back into the site before deleting them. The two films presented here examine the process and context of the work. They are audio-visual performance essays, constructed within the screen of a laptop in real-time. (Mark Peter Wright).
