The art of listening

At the Children in Museums event on 23rd May, we thought about the art of listening, and about how we can listen to artworks in museums. It has been said that sound is a more immersive sense than vision, which can separate us from the object of our gaze. Here is a short introduction to Soundwalking, a method for immersion into the sonic environment, with some examples featuring rhubarb, pull-along suitcases and the Amolador of Lisbon. Listen!
