Rhondda Voices is a participatory installation that seeks to challenge the subjective and objective viewpoint by merging conversational contributions with photographic views of the Rhondda valley.
Rhondda Voices (2016)
Photo print on fabric, 6 channel audio installation, duration 12 minutes
During the summer of 2016 nine people with connections to the Rhondda met on a bench with the artist and spoke about their Rhondda. The artwork forms a collective conversation of shared histories, coincidences and contradictions that make up the diverse views and landscape of the valley.
