here they all are making blizzard books for fun!!!
As part of my ten minutes of ‘glory’ I sat in my studio and recorded on paper the sounds that I heard in a 10 min period, constant traffic noise, dogs barking, the hum of my computer, mobile phone alarm, the tinny bhangra radio from the Indian restaurant next door, pans clanking, my breathing. It’s very interesting what you can hear when you give your whole concentration to one sense. We decided to all go away and do 10mins in a noisy place and then a quiet place…the group came back with some very interesting results.
I remember lookin at the earlier work of Richard Long when I was at college. He recorded sounds as he went on long walks, this is an artwork of a circular walk he took.
Sue recorded sounds on a walk with her dogs and was inspired to make a lovely small piece inspired by the sound of birds. (no photo sorry).
Sylvia recorded noise at her sisters house and converted it into stitch heres a couple of pics.
Ann (a great researcher) got all wrapped up in the idea of synesthetic art and found out all sorts on the subject (an instance of this is where an artist sees colour when listening to music) Kandinsky was a synesthetic artist
Heres a bit on Kandinsky for your viewing pleasure
