STANDING SOUND SLABS

STANDING SOUND SLABS
These were created for the Quartz exhibition in Taunton. After the huge success of my show at the Thelma Hulbert Gallery in Honiton. Where I decide to string the walls of the gallery so the sounds could be listen to by placing ones ear or a specially created ear piece to the wall to hear the sound.
For this show I used large slabs of larch which I cut into various shapes and strung. These had the most wonderful sound and looked good in the garden. Due to the ground not being permitted to be dug I had to create metal stands for them, these are not a permanent feature of the artworks
