In January 2022 I began to develop a commission of sound work under the heading audio guides, for the Holocaust Exhibition and Learning Centre in Huddersfield. I will spend the next several months working with archived interviews, and recording interviews with survivors and reading a lot of work on the Holocaust, in order to develop this body of work. Currently working my way through Peter Hayes Why? Explaining the Holocaust, which is a brilliant book presenting the statistical facts of the time period to counter the narrative that was developed in order to create, what was in essence, a race war.
As for building a soundscape that reflects the museum exhibition, which is also an aesthetic and conceptual body of work, this has been a difficult thought to process, how can I create an art work that reflects what I think but does not in any way make light of this experience.
