By Victoria Karlsson, Practice based PhD student at London College of Communication, CRISAP for Walls in Online Places Vol.2
I am currently isolating in my home just outside of London, with my partner and my cat. I have been furloughed from my job since mid-April, and as my partner is shielding, we try to go out as little as we can at the moment. I am a sound artist, and I am interested in the possibilities of listening.
I created the online performance 'Aural Conjuring' wanting to use the act of listening as a way of reaching out towards the world, towards people I miss, towards a different (better?) future. It is a way for me to listen to what is suddenly distant, towards a multitude of possible futures, but also a way of listening towards my fears and anxieties.
