  • Visitation: an encounter with the unrepresentable

Hosea, Birgitta, 2014, Conference or Workshop, Visitation: an encounter with the unrepresentable at Haunted Landscapes: Nature, Super-Nature and the Environment Symposium, Falmouth University, 8th March 2014.

Abstract or Description:

Goosebumps, hairs stand on end, a knot in the stomach, an inexplicable feeling of chill… a place can have a visceral impact on the human subject.

In this paper, I will consider the affect of site and how echoes of the past resonate with the present in certain historic spaces. With reference to my 2004 installation, Visitation, sited in the crypt of St Pancras church, London, and 2012 performance, Medium, in the belfry of St John on Bethnal Green, London, I will examine how site, sound, technology and computer manipulation were combined to imagine the spirit world and evoke a digital sublime.
