(the) sound (of) images

writing photographs
Starr auditorium @ Tate Modern

13th October 2018

In this two hours workshop for Writing Photographs, a collaboration between Tate and The Photography and the Contemporary Imaginary Research Hub at London College of Communication, I proposed to use photographs as scores and breath as a compositional tool, allowing for a metaphorical breathing in of what one sees and literal breathing out, through sounds, words, gestures, of what each image can elicit in us. Such breathing and writing and reading requires a certain kind of deep listening (Pauline Oliveros, 2005) to the silent speech of images but also to ourselves.

This workshop is based on a textual score (sound(ing) images (2017), soon to be published in Revolve:R , for which I was invited to respond to a set of given images.
(Revolve:R, edition three (Intellect (Bristol, UK / Chicago, USA) and Arrow Bookworks (UK))

The 4 short pieces on this short video were performed live by the participants (photographers, writers and image makers) at the end of the workshop.
