The conversation focus on ‘Ghosts of Noise’, Sadia’s immersive installation in The Model Citizen (8 Feb – 23 March) at RMIT Gallery.





Sadia Sadia: “My interest is in how people are emotionally affected by the immersive film art installations comprising sound and moving images, one of the things that I’ve always wanted to do is seeing the complete and proper installation of my work Ghosts of Noise.”

“Ghosts of Noise is 20 channels of male and female newsreaders, Newscasters and correspondents. This is in fact a non gendered image, it comprises Men and women to create a ghost. A ghost of noise is ambivalent, it can be read in a whole across a whole spectrum of interpretations.” 

“I had started to internalize this level of noise and I found it really troubling because suddenly it was a phenomenon in my consciousness that was palpable.”
