Some things to be remembered





There are things that we treasure, personally or as a community, for different reasons. There are objects that make us nostalgic for the past, for place or for people. Clair O'Halloran's pieces in her 'Keepsakes' exhibition are both reminders of the past; of time and place and objects that will inevitably become 'keepsakes' themselves.

new work in sound and shape by

Rich Bitting


The natural soundscape is rich with color and nuance beyond imagination. It is from this sonic metaworld that I draw inspiration for my projects.

The human perception of sound has a relationship with the other senses. As I grew to appreciate this relationship between the senses, I began to realize that my musical scores—the physical scores themselves—could serve not only as performance directions, they could convey meaning as visual art in their own right. Visual art—painting, sculpture, etc.—has its own way of expressing rhythms and harmonies. I have created separate works in both visual and sonic media that are representations of these same, intangible ideas.

As a species, we have evolved to rely primarily on our sense of sight. Our brains have evolved to edit our soundscapes, to filter out “perceived” background “noise” and to process only that sound we deem necessary as information. I invite you to close your eyes, open your mind, and listen to the world through fresh ears.
