The Thwopper consists of a series of kinetic sound sculptures which combine to form an electronic orchestra. Matt composes the sounds and conducts the machines whose movements generate different pitches. The result is a mesmerising soundscape from an epic work of sound sculpture.

‘breaking in’, a series of photographs and drawings by Rebecca Gallo, has its basis in an act of vandalism: a burglar left his mark on her home by splashing drawing ink at the scene of the crime. This strangely creative act was the catalyst for a body of work exploring the value of personal space and possessions.
