Sanctuary

Documentation of Caitlin Shepherd’s project “Sanctuary”.

In a small cabin that is open to the sky on one side, the audience listens to a wireless intimate sound-scape. Part-social documentary, part-poetry, part-psychedelic musicscape, Sanctuary charts the stories of four people exploring their own relationships with the concept and experience of Sanctuary. The interactive, multi- sensory experience lasts for approximately 50 minutes, and is for four to six people at a time, echoing the intimacy of the project. Emotive, transporting and evocative, the experience blurs site-specific social documentary with contemporary sound
art.
