LOL (2022)

Additional Information

'LOL' is a site-specific sonic intervention delivered through the public address system of Middlesbrough’s CCTV surveillance network. On dedicated sites in the centre of town passers-by will hear political slogans, news headlines - read by the AI voice ‘Kate’ - and the sounds of protest, reflecting the current state of political affairs in Britain. The three-part collage was created by Sound Art Brighton artist Olivia Louvel, with field-recordings by Swiss artist Stefano Christen and was produced in collaboration with Kersten Glandien.

For Middlesbrough Art Weekender, 22-25 September.
