This work was exhibited at Newcastle University in 2012 for Sara's MFA Degree Show. It incorporated a whorly wooden wall, and two speakers whose sound reverbeates through the wall's surface.


Rattle evokes a personal memory regarding the passage from being to cessation: it describes a movement between confined and spacious, dark and bright, intense and moderate, life and death. Camouflaged within the surface, the disease opposes this flux, exorbitant in the wide open and subtle where the air is narrow and the gurgling rowdier. The thin structure defies its own heights by swirling its longitude across the room.


By negotiating their passage throughout the immersive structure, experiencing its various instances, visitors were invited to reflect over their own perception of comfort and discomfort, peace and distress, to which extent of maneuvrability.
