Explore the sites and sounds of Brisbane with artist Lawrence English.
“If we are to speak of a primacy of sense, then our eyes hold this title. For most of us, the way we come to know the world is through our eyes. The world is not simply a visual canvas, however, and the role our other senses might play in decoding the complexities of experience can’t be overlooked, to use an ocularly loaded term.
‘Site Listening : Brisbane’ is a work that celebrates our audition. It is the act of attentive listening in any chosen location, privileging the auditory environment as the focus of awareness and interest. Site Listening invites us to reconsider our ways of being in, and knowing, the world. It’s an opportunity to connect deeply to our capacities as listeners and to lean in to the sound fields we find ourselves within.”
