Through a series of dialogues, soundscapes and video, the work paints a multifaceted picture of place, identity and peoples resillience in a context of challenging times. The focus of this works social lens aims to make peoples voices audible, and to encourage reflection, conversation and learning around the signposts and insights they reveal about peoples sense of place.
These conversations reveal a spirit of resillience through the transformative power of narrative. Home, community, landscape, the names of places and faces, the place of the mind and of memory.
