Sound & Vision

Sarah Duyshart | Emma Lashmar | Ross Manning

Curated by Lauren Simmonds, Sound & Vision brings together installations that trigger our senses through light, sound and vibration. The artists Emma Lashmar, Sarah Duyshart and Ross Manning use materials such as water, glass, flour and paper alongside amplifiers, sensors and microphones to completely inhabit the gallery space.

Art Exhibition previously on at Counihan Gallery In Brunswick in Victoria, Australia.

These immersive installations prompt us to think about how we listen, absorb and respond to various phenomena such as ambient light or constant sound, while also considering the dynamics between technology and contemporary life.
