CLARE GASSON
Clare Gasson looks to cinematic space and experience, though concentrating on
sound, and the imagination of the audience – looking to the atmospheric and
sensate. The work is often presented via sound systems. This may take the form
of a CD for CD walkmans, or the sound may come out of a monumental
sculpture/speakers.  She is interested in questioning the authority of the
medium. The work is disseminated through different media – often too these
are repeated, for example the narration on the limited edition CD is also to be
shown as a script in a journal.
