A connected work, Sound Inventory
continues until 30 September in the concourse of the Centre. Locke has recorded sounds from around the world for almost two decades. Some of these processed samples are then passed through water and captured using digital stereomicroscopy to create beautiful and intriguing images, each revealing a clear visual relationship with the original sound source. Each sound, place of recording, date and time is notated in an inventory chart.
A new publication will be available in September featuring text by John Newling and an interview with the artist by YSP Deputy Curator Sarah Coulson.
Locke is a Principal Researcher within The Digital and Material Arts Research Centre at The University of Derby.
