I have a picture in my head of one of the people we work with walking through and knocking down all the speakers in the installation.  Its not the actual work but the idea behind the work, the idea that someone moving through a space can trigger sounds, that the room is full of different sounds.  If the speakers didnt exist as they do in the art work, would it be possible to create a room of sounds where the speakers were hidden?  Would it be possible to have the sounds triggered by movement?

I saw Janet Cardiff’s work in New York.  She had made a set of drawers, each drawer when you opened it contained a different sound.  Ahhh the possibilities!
