Iris has been teaching sound installation on the BA Sonic Art at London College of Communication since 2009. Find some of the student’s installation works from 2011 onwards here: http://lccinstallations.tumblr.com.
She also acts as a final portfolio tutor for 3rd year BA students, delivers lectures about the relationship between sound and vision, and shares her experience of curating and producing events with Sprawl with MA Sound Arts students.
Sound Portal Designer Stephen Philips said in an interview that the main inspiration for the design of the structure was Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey. Coincidentally London College of Communication holds the Stanley Kubrick archive and when combined with a love of sci-fi in general this seemed the perfect embarkation point for the sound artists’ sonic explorations.
Remembering Worlds builds on these influences and creates a journey in sound and space. The piece weaves together memories from the Kubrick Inner Circle oral history project at the archive with more personal ones to the piece’s creators, intersected with sounds that primarily live in cultural imagination: those of alien landings, titan battles and human exploration.
The result is a playful narrative that comments on perceptions of imagining future and past, whilst folding these into the act of listening.
