Crying Out Loud
Stretch is a stand alone interactive installation, an improvised performance and a workshop experience. A sound sculpture, a blank canvas, minimalist and symbolic in appearance, Stretch is a screen made of hundreds of strands of fine shirring elastic stretching from wall to wall across a space. Its many miles of elastic create a permeable threshold or boundary, embracing the architecture of the space it occupies. The sculpture invites interaction, quietly provoking the viewer into physical engagement, to manipulate it, and to discover its potential to transform and be transformed. There are no instructions about what to do or how to be. The viewer makes their own multi-sensory journey. Stretch continues to show nationally and internationally at festivals, theatres and in public spaces.
