'The Shape of Sound’ is a scaled-up installation of elements of the human ear by artist-researcher Petra Johnson (PhD) working in collaboration with researchers in Coventry University's Centre for Dance Research (C-DaRE). The installation will be made up of rows of individual silk threads cascading from light weight poles that will be resting on first floor ledges of the space. Visitors will be able to walk into this space and explore how their voice choreographs the air. There will be easels with informative posters and leaflets about the ear. Visitors will be invited to engage with the installation to experience the interconnectedness of sound and touch. The exhibition will be available to view throughout the festival. It will be accompanied by dance performances to engage audiences with the installation.
