Sound Murals, Interacting with the Future - Hosted by Transmuted Worlds


During the two hour workshop participants will create an interactive sound mural which visually and sonically explores imagined futures of life on earth.

Using the artists own research area as a starting point, this workshop will open up discussions with the participants as we imagine distant futures of life on earth. This will be explored through paintings and sound. The paintings will act as touch sensors, triggering sound clips, which will be used in a live sound art performance at the end of the workshop. Each participant will paint their own touch sensor using conductive paint, and will choose what sound will be triggered from their own recordings (made during the workshop), or from a sound archive provided.

The painted sensors will then be attached to a wall and connected to a Touch Board. What it is – Bare Conductive Touchpad, a small micro controller which allows you to connect up to 12 touch sensors, which can trigger sound.

The teaching staff will provide the materials needed for workshops and Aprons for children. There will also be light refreshments for children and parents. Parents of younger children are welcome to stay for the duration of the workshop if they wish. The exhibition space is in the centre of town so there are also plenty of shops and cafes in the surrounding area.

The workshops are on a sign up basis and open to all children interested in taking part.

Accessibility – There is excellent accessibility within the building , elevators and disabled access to all floors. There is a toilet on level 4-one floor down from the exhibition space. Parking is limited but there is very good public transport in the area.
