Hyper Functional, Ultra Healthy | Rowdy SS

13 Jan – 09 Feb 2020
New Wing

Part of Hyper Functional, Ultra Healthy, a programme of six specially commissioned artworks exploring the concept and practice of wellness.

A sound installation that synthesises the ceaseless urban noise of London to create a new soundscape of refuge and respite. 

London is noisy;  sirens, drilling, honking, shouting, the endless grind of traffic. The Tube. From stress, to heart disease to type 2 diabetes, research suggests noise pollution creates problems for people's health.

For 10 years Rowdy SS has been recording London's damaging noise, in this new work he remixes this archive to create a soundscape for healing.
