AboutDuring his residency at The Rea Garden, sound and visual artist Graham Dunning explored processes of excavation, cataloging and re-ordering of artifacts found on the site. He has also captured sound and created sound works during the summer residency. âVisitor Centre' presents these sound works and the evidence of his excavation.
Graham's residency in the garden is linked to a discovery made by the first artist in residence Hannah Hull who, in her initial excavation of areas of the site, uncovered pieces of shellac used for ground fill; closer inspection revealed the grooves of a pressed record. Part of Graham's work at The Rea Garden involved uncovering the remainder in order to collage together these fragments and create a new, playable sound disc. This particular work will be presented at the co-current exhibition;
