In 'The Passing Of Time', I combined three days of sound recording at the Hull School Of Art & Design - the Anlaby Road site - & condensed a total of six hours into a continuous forty-five minute recording. There was one recording for each floor (which included the basement, ground, first & second floors), that played throughout the day of the installation. I tried to capture the sounds, activity, atmosphere & the sense of history inside the building.
The sound installation brought together four different 'levels' of events & time periods within the building. Consequently, footsteps & voices travelled from one floor to another & pass themselves heading at a different time, on a different day. By moving through the various levels of sound (that collected in the vast central stairwell/entrance hall), you became more aware of the diverse qualities of the space, & the unique ambience to each floor. There were moments of frantic activity & moments of calm. Real time events also became part of the installation - but what was real at the time & what was recorded?
