Interactive sound installation
Coslett Courtyard, Anglia Ruskin University, East Road CB1 1PT
You have an invitation to swing:
Lie back and push your feet off the ground.
A pendulum, suspended, always on the verge –
Are you falling or are you flying?
Playfully out of sync with its architectural surroundings, A VALE explores displacement and possibility through an interactive soundscape.
A VALE was originally commissioned by UCL for the 2016 Festival of Culture and supported by Arts Council England.
Anna Brownsted makes experiential work using installation, intervention, immersion and encounter to explore the dynamics of trust, uncertainty and possibility. Her practice plays in the space between fiction and reality, merging the unexpected with the everyday. The work is interactive and intimate, often situating participants as protagonists in an unfolding narrative.
UK showings include Art Language Location (2015), Cambridge Junction, The British Museum, UCL, The Roundhouse, The Old Vic Tunnels, Battersea Arts Centre, Cambridge Art Salon, and Forest Fringe Travelling Sounds Library. Anna also produces work under the collaborative moniker Unclaimed Creatures.
