InterAccess is pleased to present The Watch Man, a new major video and sound installation by internationally acclaimed London-based artist Shona Illingworth. In the exhibition, the artist weaves together the physical and the psychological, creating an immersive environment where a complex sound composition surrounds the viewer. Using feonic audio technologies originally developed by the US Navy, the installation activates the gallery space, turning the floor into a speaker that resonates with sound.
