Border Sounds (2011-2015)

Participatory Sound Installation 

  Border Sounds  is a video, performance and sound installation in the form of a silent disco. The work examines notions of territory in relation to nation-states and diasporic experiences. Musical tracks with lyrics referencing the text inside passports are employed to heighten and accentuate the ever-changing boundaries that we navigate daily. These tracks are experienced privately via headphones and are accompanied by video projections emulating an atmosphere similar to a club or disco.
