Artwork > Viewpoint MONA FOMA 2016

Set within the festival site, Viewpoint offers the MONA FOMA audience a moment of separation from the festival bellow. Each participant climbs the ladder to the elevated chair, and is then isolated for four minutes by a closed trapdoor. Once seated, layered sounds are listened to through headphones that aim to draw the participant up while highlighting the experience of watching, waiting and judging.

Sound designed by Matt Warren in collaboration with Amanda Shone
