With funding from the York Annual Fund, John Wedgwood Clarke and Damian Murphy have been able to collaborate on a new sound installation for King's Manor. Taking as their starting point the King's Manor's history as a school for the blind, they have been exploring the ways in which the use of poetry and sound recordings of the city can construct a mental map of the cities less well known and hidden spaces.  One of the most acoustically exciting environments, mixing the contemporary and the ancient, York has provided them with the perfect opportunity to explore how we make order out of chaos. They will be talking about their process of working together and then perform their work.
