Created in collaboration with artist and technologist Mike Blow.

‘Pod’ is an installation that acts as a mediator between the audible, the visual and the corporeal by translating sound into a tactile, visual object. With its own physical presence, sound can be experienced in new ways, allowing it to be simultaneously seen, heard and felt. Through physical interaction with the work (touching, hugging, etc), audiences hear sound emanating from inside as well as feeling it resonate upon the surface of the spheres.

Alison is currently working with artist Mike Blow, Hogarth Productions, and Oxford Contemporary Music to transform the work into a performative piece, due to premiere in 2016.
