This weekend is the final chance to catch Bruce Nauman’s Days and the SOUNDWORKS exhibitions in the galleries. As part our sound art weekend this Saturday, Joe Banks, founder of art project Disinformation and researcher at Goldsmiths College and The University of Westminster, will take his seat on our panel discussion – Part II: Acoustic Ambiguities. He is going to talk about Electronic Voice Phenomena recordings and the similarities between audio misconceptions and visual illusions, but at 2.30pm he will also be joining us in the bookshop to sign copies of his latest book, Rorschach Audio.
Part detective story, part artistic and cultural critique, Rorschach Audio lifts the lid on a sparkling array of perceptual and political phenomena. Crucial for everyone interested in audio art, cocktail parties, compost, lip-reading jokes, singing hair, Victorian blood painting and of course, fires.
