About this Event

Join sculptor, sound-artist and writer, Dr Nigel Helyer, (a.k.a. Dr Sonique) for this workshop which will lead you on an audio journey, testing the power of language to find the descriptive and analytical language to describe sound in the environment.

This event is part of the Manly Dam Project at Manly Art Gallery & Museum, an exhibition by eight contemporary artists from a variety of practices who have created new work inspired by place, history, water management and engineering. The Manly Dam area is a unique landscape rich in natural biodiversity, shaped by the interventions of engineering and science. Once the source of drinking water in Sydney’s north, fresh water continues to flow from the catchment to the sea. Along with a rich Aboriginal cultural significance, the area’s European history is layered with stories of social and recreational activity.

Dr. Nigel Helyer has forged an international reputation for his large scale sound-sculpture installations, environmental public artworks, museum inter-actives and new media projects. His practice is interdisciplinary, linking Art and Science, or more accurately Poesis and Teche in a strong embrace of the environment, community and ecology - manifest as a range of complex works that form a nexus between art, society and ecology. These prompt the community to engage with their cultural histories, identity and sense of place; inviting us to examine the abstract conditions of our world and our complex relationships to it.
