London, LCC exhibition ‘Heightened States of Awareness’, 2019
In Situ, sound installation composed of hand drawn maps, analog photography and a sound piece that
explores perception of the (in)audible and the (in)visible of the Elephant and
Castle roundabout in London. The focus is on the five
main points of intersection surrounding the E&C roundabout, all of which
are composed of a complex sonic atmosphere, where layers of rhythms,
vibrations, densities, frequencies and temporalities overlap and resonate
through space. The maps and the audio - a journey through the three layers of
E&C: its underground, surface and up-above - question borders and
limitations in a place filled with man-made boundaries.
The place in South London is known for its transient character and loud sounds, dominated
by sirens and engines. Often drowned by the urban noise, In Situ is the result
of a research that focuses on E&C’s inherent, yet underlying and
potentially vanishing sounds. The E&C shopping center, the first American style mall in London, opened in 1965 and disappeared in 2022 demolished by a massive regeneration plan that changed the Southwark borough.

DripsSonic project, Zeitgeist 2022
Drips is a transatlantic conversation between visual, performance and vocal artist Anna Homler and Ava Halloran, who was particularly interested in Homler’s Pharmacia Poetica collection, her own invented
language and her early performance work, the Breadwoman.
In response to the Her Noise archive, the dreamlike exchange follows themes of communication, sound,
gender and archive.
