Prescot Museum: The Sounds of Time
1 December 2017 – 31 March 2018
Prescot Museum, The Prescot Centre, Aspinall Street, Prescot, L34 5GA
An exhibition of whirring, ticking sculptures which allow people to hear the individual sounds associated with clockwork.
Owl Project is a collaborative group of artists consisting of Simon Blackmore, Antony Hall and Steve Symons. They work with wood and electronics to fuse sculpture and sound art, creating music making machines, interfaces and objects which intermix pre-steam and digital technologies.
Drawing on influences such as 70’s synthesiser culture, DIY woodworking and current digital crafts, the resulting artwork is a quirky and intriguing critique of the allure and production of technology. Owl Project make a distinctive range of musical and sculptural instruments that question human interaction with computer interfaces and our increasing appetite for new and often disposable technologies.
