Reflections on Home interactive sound installation08/05/2019
Reflections on Home is a new interactive sound installation that celebrates local voices, memories, well-known and forgotten places on the Alton Estate in Roehampton.
Over the past year, artists in residence Sara Heywood and Jane Watt have worked with more than 200 people who live, work or have a connection with the Alton Estate in Roehampton to gather a vibrant mix of audio-visual material. Conducting interviews and workshops with local schools, youth groups, OAP groups, Roehampton University, local businesses, workers and residents, the artists have developed a temporary, interactive sound installation and mobile audio walking app that celebrate the area’s rich history, past and present-day experiences.
Reflections on Home goes live during Wandsworth Arts Fringe 2019. Experience the temporary sound sculptures sited on Downshire Field (Bull Green), join the artists as they take you on a special performance promenade around the Estate, download Reflections on Home audio walking Sound App – downloadable for free onto a mobile phone or tablet (iOS and Android friendly) and come along to guided audio walks, to uncover the sights, sounds and stories of the Alton Estate.
Reflections on Home is commissioned by Artscape, Redrow and Wandsworth Council, as part of the Alton Estate Regeneration.
