Echoes explores the archaeology of sound by looking at Kent’s coastal sound mirrors, spherical dishes built in the early 20thC to reflect & concentrate soundwaves. Providing an early warning system against incoming aircraft they could approximate location & distance, helping to pave the way for radar positioning. By inviting guests to interact live with an immersive installation & sound piece using built acoustic mirrors, Echoes raises questions about sound, archaeology & human experience.
