ivon oates, in collaboration with metamedia artists Mandy Rathbone, David Rogers and Joe Stevens recorded and performed experiments in reinterpreting the landscape – working from and experimenting in the Drill Hall, sonically exploring Portland quarries, showcasing work in progress.

at the Drill Hall Gallery, Portland, Dorset

Supported by DIVAcontemporary Studio Bridport and Portland Sculpture Quarry Trust

The recorded sounds were recorded with binaural microphones, listening closely to drilled holes in the Portland stone and pipes deeply set into the rock.  The echoes , wind and bird created sounds  together describe the wide and expectant space,  a listening ear in the rock.
