Cacophony’, is commissioned by and premiering at the Illuminate Adelaide Festival 2022. The work uses the restaurant façade on Lower Rundle street in downtown Adelaide. Playing hard and fast with the English language to produce various kinds of chaos, and peering through windows and listening to silence surrounding family violence to invoke a kind of auditory synaesthesia, Cacophony aims to invoke a kind of transcendent visual space. Cacophony experiments with visual techniques in order to examine this serious and complex theme and the phenomena in family violence.
