About

Rachel works in sound, photography, film and visual art. She is interested in where our attention is, what we listen to and how this influences our present experience.

Her research into sound has led to the making of sound installations, dance performance and sound walks. In her visual arts practice she explores how we may visualise sound and draws attention to the spaces and places we inhabit and how we feel in and around these spaces.

Her design and fine arts background provides a lens through which to view and reflect upon how space and place positively impact our sense of belonging and wellness.
