Remnant Breath – Keith Armstrong and Leah Barclay
Leah Barclay (AU) and Keith Armstrong (AU) (as part of Remnant/Emergency Artlab/SCANZ 2011: Eco sapiens) invite you to an immersive sound walk on the Te Henui Walkway this Wednesday 26th January.
The work invites an acute sensitisation to this place solely through the often ignored senses of sound. The 20 minute experience reveals remnant sonic layers of this environment and explores stories of water, breath, place and environmental action.
‘Remnant Breath’ is the first showing of a work in progress. The project will evolve into an interactive garden of ephemeral sound growing and conversing with the natural environment.
Walks start at either 9pm or 10pm and last around 20 minutes – please arrive on time as it will not be possible to join the walk late.
Enter the Te Henui Walkway from the Lemon Street Entrance (close to Watson Street) – right next to the entrance to the Te Henui Graveyard on Lemon Street.
Presented as part of the SCANZ 2011: Eco sapiens events which have brought over 20 local national and international artists to Taranaki.

Hi Leah and Keith,
How did the remnant breath walks go? I loved our walk down the river to the glowworms. Did you film them react to sound??? Hope you’ve both had a fabulous residency!
