Hard Drives Soft Walks 

“‘Hard Drives, Soft Walks’which was held in  Chemist Gallery from January -February 2023 is a mashed up journey of two artists Martina O'Shea and Seren Metcalfe, from night clubs, to mud larking, glitching landscape, tv soaps, late night walks and half remembered dreams.
The center of the installation is a collaborative sound piece: two voices telling tales through radio static, located in an ever changing vista of London, Ireland and Yorkshire. Fields, birdsong hit against traffic jams and sirens, mummers and echos from tv sets counter to techno beats transformed into the bodhrán. City remains and construction materials, pop memorabilia and programmed lights are forming a ghostly, theatrical set of the ever in flux space between body, place and time.”

Hard Drives Soft Walks Zine 

This zine is an edited version of  the google doc from which the collaborative show 'Hard Drives Soft Walks' was born.

Starting off as complete strangers, they used the doccument as a means to form a greater understanding of each others practices:memory/material/sound/structures. The conversation evolved into monologs, poetry abd eventually a 12 minute soundtrack which is presented as a coloured insert. Please contact Chemist Gallery if you would like to purchase a zine.
