Artist Talk | Lieselle McMahon – Sound Visions

Lieselle McMahon is an artist with a multidisciplinary practice incorporating sound, audio visual installation, sculpture, photography and live art. She will be talking about how, having started with a background in sound (using sound synthesis, sound sculpture and design, field recordings, voice), it is the central element in her process, with her work often first visualised through sound and the piece then developing to involve other media from there. This fundamental entry point into the visual through the aural will be discussed using examples from her body of work.
