world ocean day 2008 @ the foundry, london

the world ocean day sound laboratory 2008 in pictures. the foundry is built on top of an ancient well, so the building’s vaults – directly on top of the well – were the ideal location for our aquatic celebration. we organised a participatory soundtrack to diving footage and showed the results of a spontaneous participatory photographic exhibition. a few examples can be seen below. for more information, please see ‘previous projects’ on the right or contact the mermaid!
