I have created a new installation piece for the Make||Sound sound art festival that runs in Leicester from Saturday 6th June to Thursday 11th June in a pop up venue in the Highcross shopping Mall. The venue, a former Virgin Media store, will be transformed into an exhibition space for new sound works. My installation, entitled ‘Jack’ explores an idea I wrote about some 15 years ago, the Anxious Sound Object. Drawing on Harold Rosenberg’s notion of the anxious object, and artwork so realistic it causes anxiety in the viewer. The anxious sound object uses a concealed sound source to similarly evoke a possible reality. ‘Jack’ looks like a load of old rubbish!
