Reflections on PLace

Practising Uncertainty Exhibition, Backlit, Nottingham, 2021

A four channel AV installation with mobile phone audio and video footage contributed by 12 young people. I made a call out to invite young people to record their spoken reflections on their relationship to place, whilst they simultaneously recorded their shadow figure. I shared a 6 minute video projection combining the 12 sections of footage accompanied by four different audio tracks, a different young person speaking about their connection to place on each. The audience was invited to choose which young person’s voice they wanted to accompany the visuals by picking up a set of headphones; or switching between them; or watching the video several times with a different young person’s voice each time.
