Sonic Wallpapers

Sonic Wallpapers is an imaginative exploration of the wallpaper samples from our collections.  Sound artist, Dr Felicity Ford has created sound-pieces based on interviews and field recordings.  Her work expands the way we think about wallpaper, drawing our ears into a context which has historically been discussed in purely visual terms.

The exhibition has been designed so that you can listen to the sound piece as you look at the corresponding wallpaper.  What memories are prompted for you? How do your responses differ? 

The Sonic Wallpapers publication (which includes a free CD) accompanies the exhibition and is available to purchase via the online shop.

The touring version of  Sonic Wallpapers was launched at the Knitting and Stitching Show at Alexandra Palace, in October 2012. The exhibition will tour to other venues soon.
