On 22 July we held our third seminar, completing the trio of workshops on postphenomenology. The focus today was on sound and Michael Gallagher’s thinking about how audio media can destabilise space and subjectivity. Michael presented his audio drift work from Kilmahew, a ruin 20 miles west of Glasgow. His ‘Kilhahwe Audio Drift No. 1’ is an audio walk intended to ‘invite further engagement with the site, stimulate debate and perhaps attract some additional visitors’. You can listen to his talk on the Workshop 3 page. There’s more information on Michael’s web page: http://www.michaelgallagher.co.uk/research
Following the presentation and some questions we had a short group discussion about next steps. Most people seemed interested to maintain contact and/or involvement. We are currently preparing some ideas for follow-up work.
