'As a sound artist my focus is on the sound and rhythm of a place: the mundane beauty of the urban environment and how it can connect to image and object. Here in Bedford, as Artist in Residence, my idea was to walk the town, discover what makes it tick, and re-interpret it in my own playful map.' (Matt Cook, Stereography statement)
The resulting installation was an eccentric, visual map of Bedford: Trees made of pencils spun majestically on cheap cassette players, toy aircraft were fitted with speakers, plastic people whizzed round in circles. Sections of moving audiotape climbed the gallery wall, occupying the space with their mechanisms exposed to reveal the workings of the installation.
