Heard not seen, a new short audio filmscape about a playground.
In Victorian times they used to say that children should be seen and not heard. These days the fear and politics of photographing children have changed in such a way that it’s considered suspicious to photograph them, yet capturing the sound they make is another matter. Heard not seen marks the presence of children and the spaces they play in without actually seeing them.
Recorded with binaural audio, best experienced with headphones. 2016.
