Photographic images taken inside the dormant Coffin Works of the patina developed over generations on hundreds of panes of glass are displayed across four screens – each of which host a composed sound work. Each composition is designed to react to the acoustics of the factory interior that were captured and preserved before renovation. The glass has since been cleaned, the rooms have been upgraded. This digital gallery therefore contains the audiovisual DNA of the original site. It is both artwork and archive – what you are seeing and hearing, in essence, no longer exists outside of this piece.

 

The Shroud

Elegy (i) violin / viola

Empty Buildings

Elegy (ii) voice

The panels are designed to be experienced both in isolation (through headphones)
and also as a quadtych. Depending on which panel is focused upon, relationships
can be made between the soundscapes and the images on all four panels.

Audiovisual piece (2014)

Focusing on surface texture, multiple images taken from around the Newman Brothers factory prior to its renovation track light movement inside the building across notches, drill holes and floor impressions. Captured within the projected shadows are recurring crosses – referencing some of the funerary wares that were manufactured at Newman Brothers.
