Snow Day

Snow Day freezes in time 8 minutes in the life of the artist and her 9-yr old daughter. Using a mixture of field recordings, processed video footage and an installation that re-imagines the 1950s commercial architecture of the Art Station as a domestic space, the audience is transported to the back door of the artist’s home in rural Suffolk, just after lunch on 8 February 2021. This multimedia piece draws together ideas from a variety of places: the practice of reanimating cultural heritage sites; analogue video synthesis and vintage image processing; and, the ethos that lies at the heart of the late composer Pauline Oliveros’ practice, (the mother of Deep Listening), “spending time with a single sound just to see what happens”.

Snow Day was installed as part of HERE at the Art Station, Saxmundham during June-August, 2021.
