SCRATCHING THE SURFACE
Sound walk for
25 min duration
Guided along the cement pavement by a disembodied voice, through a linear white line, the participating audience members embark on a renewed vision; of the creekside canal, the construction site, the road outside, the sky above, the hotel next door.
Sound clips taken from various documentaries, adverts, promotional slogans, protests and educational videos are cut and pasted on this seemingly mundane surrounding, juxtaposing their intentions on those who witness it.
Partially alone with their individual sound guide, yet meeting in unexpected groups, the participants are prompted to converse. Questions vary between what they have heard, their opinions, a fragmented piece of information, a past event, a remembrance.
