3D immersive sound installation

A voice gently reads a list of every portrait that Picasso painted, whilst sounds move around the space that feature in the background of these paintings, from a noisy bar, insects, pipe smoking, laughter and much more. The work explores the idea of place, language and identity in an atmospheric and suggestive way, where imagination and physical space collide.

Installation as part of Everything You Can Imagine is Real, accompanying exhibition of works by Picasso. Curated and produced by Martyn Ware for Illustrious.
