Data as Culture - Art that uses data as a material

Felicity Ford works with sound and wool. She believes that discrete sonic textures are as important to a sense of place as a location’s flora and fauna. Listening to Shetland Wool connects our experience of Shetland wool with the landscapes and cultures it originates from, through an online sound map and a hand-knitted woollen speaker pillow. Lambs and sheep call out, birds sing and caw, and weavers, ‘linkers’, wool-sorters and other wool workers talk about their work – all alongside sounds of industry and many different varieties of Shetland wind. The piece calls for a deeper consideration of the labour, communities and environments that produce our everyday materials.
