Last Words (2015) combines sculpture and performance to create a participatory work that places the body at the centre. Inspired by Dylan Thomas’s poem, ‘Do not go gentle into that good night’, the work aims to critically engaging with the audience in a respective and playful way. Sound is used as the main element of communication as it can challenge our acoustemologies, imprinting a different experience into our memory than visual imagery has to offer. By physically entering into the boxes or conversing via the listening post Last Words recreates an architectural space that explores the unconscious, darkness, isolation, life, death and the uncanny.
