‘beneath water’s skin, future drowns memory,’ is a sound-sculpture installation that explores the notion of listening deeply. By speculating on an imaginative archaeological artefact that is discovered underwater, the work offers soundscape that plays our expectations of the sonic past, present and future. As I operate at intersections, this work combines the central aspect of my own practice – sound. Sound is the medium that can conjure sensations of joy and nostalgia from memories we have yet to make, and remind us of what could be. Through the connective tissue of sound, the work to create a space for deep listening and to operate as a small, but immersive and welcoming space for meditation. ‘beneath water’s skin, future drowns memory,’ seeks to ask of us, what if we were to listen more deeply, listen backwards and listen beneath?

Her artistic practice is driven by explorations into the sonic connections across nature; practices of decolonisation and listening deeply. The hallmark of her interdisciplinary practice is her belief that a partnership with Nature is fundamental, and that Nature is a collaborator to her design, research and sound-based work.
