CRiSAP is a research centre of the University of the Arts London dedicated to the exploration of the rich complexities of sound as an artistic practice.

 

Our main aim is to extend the development of the emerging disciplinary field of sound arts and to encourage the broadening and deepening of the discursive context in which sound arts is practised.

The exhibition includes selected images from seven photographic series that were made independently of each other in the first decade of the new millennium. These artists portray mock domestic rooms, aircraft, houses, streets and whole fake towns designed as military and civilian architectural simulations in preparation for real and imagined future conflicts across the globe. Their work poses questions about the nature of truth as it manifests itself in current photographic practice.
 
These themes are extended throughout the LCC gallery spaces in work by sound artists from UAL’s Creative Research into Sound Arts Practice (CRiSAP) research centre. CRiSAP artists Cathy Lane, Angus Carlyle (and his collaborator, the anthropologist Rupert Cox), David Toop and Peter Cusack add a multi-dimensional resonance to the photographic works with sound and moving image installations and written texts.

Points of Listening with Peter Cusack, Aral Sea Stories

 

 

PoL # 12 Aral Sea Stories: Tahrira, golden carp, untraceable artists who restore fishermen to ships stranded in the desert and other tales

 
Date: Wednesday February 11th, 2015
 
Fifty years ago the Aral Sea in Central Asia was the planet’s fourth largest lake. In the decades since it has virtually disappeared; a victim of the disastrous cotton irrigation schemes that extract most of the water from its feeder rivers. However today Kazakhstan is making a surprisingly successful attempt to restore the small part of the North Aral within it’s territory. Water levels have risen, native fish species have spectacularly increased, wildlife is returning and, although there is a long way to go, improvement to the environment are obvious. The fishing industry is employing local people once more, bringing work into an impoverished and depopulated region.
