Chelle Macnaughtan – Spatial Listening

Artist Chelle Macnaughtan’s floor-based collection of etched black aluminium panels invite gallery visitors to participate in the work by walking over the surface.

Chelle’s photographs are witnesses of someone else’s voice, that is, in the unknown municipal worker’s graphic marking of the date, they silently read the numbers as they work, or revisit the site to undertake further work. Furthermore, in the act of digital capture, and in reading the dates in the photographs, it is the reader’s own voice that is heard. Listening to the street sounds through and beyond the photographic content, such as pebbles, street debris, whether there is the evidence of lots of activity, or whether the stillness of mid winter is conveyed, cannot be isolated.
