A SENSE OF PLACE

by Tony HILL
2003 / Video / b&w / sound / 1S / 5' 00




Sally Goode has been blind from birth. Tony Hill took her to a location unknown to her and recorded her describing what she found. By touch and sound she learns about the place and, with imagination, simplicity of expression and a joyful openness she articulates her findings. The sighted must see through her hands to experience this place. Objects, normally recognisable at a glance, become stranger and less identifiable when described by touch and without the vocabulary of vision.
A SENSE OF PLACE was originally produced for the Audible Picture Show, a programme of short audio works curated by Matt Hulse and made for presentation in a darkened cinema.
Broadcast on the US network radio show This American Life.
