Abstract

This paper explores the haptic aspects of a sound art project undertaken by the artists David Chapman and Louise K. Wilson on the Falkland Estate in Fife, Scotland. Their various sound works draw on both personal responses to the site and the testimonies of others with a specific relationship to Falkland and its rich vein of intriguing geological and archaeological features and historical narratives. This text asks what the role of touch is in the creation and experience of audio-visual media. This project and the methodologies employed open up issues in relation to the use of media technologies to investigate and re-interpret historical actions, processes, the senses and memory.
