Hearth Stories

Ingrid's art medicine

Hearth Stories is a steamy sound sculpture at the hearth of this walking circle that gives voice to Drysdale’s character.  

Bringing the wild side of the tracks to the human domain of industrial revolution, Hearth Stories is a sensual experience of sight, sound and scent.

Preliminary model

These are the stories that are usually told around the community fire or the central hearth in the home. They speak of both personal and collective experiences. These are stories of humankind in relationship to nature and to each other. These are stories of survival and evolution, individually and collectively.

The installation invites walkers in to the centre of the circle to hear the sounds of people and place.
