transient landscapes - leah barclay (2010)
Transient Landscapes is a collection of works from the installation Sound Mirrors by Leah Barclay. Sound Mirrors is an immersive environment that responds to significant rivers across the world. Throughout 2009 and 2010 Leah Barclay traveled through Australia, India, Korea and China capturing the sound of rivers and their surrounding communities. The resulting work is an ephemeral experience that slides through vivid landscapes and rich cultural traditions. Sound Mirrors was selected as one of four national projects for the Australia Council’s HELM-Arts Award. HELM is an initiative of the Queensland Conservation Council that recognises innovative work at the intersection of art, science, technology and the environment.
