Touching Sound

(all photos by Olivia Brouwer) …. “Touching Sound” is a sensory-led nature walk and workshop that was made available for individuals with sight loss in June 2023. Myself, as social practice artist working in sound and multimedia artist Olivia Brouwer, a partially blind artist, ┬áin collaboration with the Canadian National Institute for the Blind, produced this workshop and subsequent installation.
The workshop involved the creation of sound-activated mixed media sculptures based on recordings and sensory activities within the natural environment of the Guelph Arboretum. Artworks created from the workshop are temporarily exhibited at the Guelph Civic Museum. Next workshop is May 25 in Waterloo, exhibiting at The Button Factory.
