During this pandemic of Covid-19 it has forced me to take notice. To take notice of the everyday things that we very much take for granted. At this time, I have fallen into the vulnerable person category meaning I have not left my residence since March 2020. My place of residence has a garden but I can not see over the wall, the only physical things I can see are the surrounding flat block, my garden and the top half of the houses built on the other side of the wall accompanied with a distant collection of trees. This has given me the chance to just listen, listen to the things I can’t see, listen for sounds I can recognise, and yet sometimes are not quite sure if what I hear is what I think it is. My online response to Covid-19 is to listen. I believe many people are unable to get out in our current climate and see the everyday but we may be able to hear some these everyday things.
Below are the images from the submissions for the sounds from home open call. Each work is different from the next, some of these images were accompanied with a sound clip.
