Abstract / Summary

This paper discusses the implications and issues that arise in carrying out a sound installation for a public art project in a commercial visitor attraction. It covers issues of visitor expectation and what role a sound installation should and can play in this context. By concentrating on the space in-between art and function we explore the real and virtual spaces that can be created through the use of technology in juxtaposition with the physical site for an installation. This paper places these issues within the context of a case study of ‘Swash’ a 24-channel permanent sound installation commissioned by Paignton Zoo for Living Coasts their new coastal habitat’s visitor attraction.
