"And this silence, almost anywhere in the world today, is traffic"- John Cage

This series of images draws attention to the nature of silence and questions its relationship to space. Based around the silence of an architectural space, an anechoic chamber and memory, this series of work uses photographic images and graphic scores to think further about the quality of each of these spaces. Ultimately, the work questions the silence of the photographic space, that of the space between the viewer and the photograph as well as the image and the object depicted.
