Harrison, K (2021) New expressions 3: heavy rock|Plymouth Sound (2015-2016) [REF2021 collection].

Item Type: Artefact
Creators: Harrison, K
Abstract: A contemporary response to the historic collections held at the Plymouth City Museum and Art Gallery, Heavy Rock|Plymouth Sound focused on the unceasing hidden construction process of the concrete Breakwater in Plymouth Sound. This public project extends Harrison's ongoing research into transforming matter through sound and making hidden processes public. This Collection comprises a multi-component output with contextualising information, evidencing the opening of the Heavy Rock event and exhibition at KARST (2015). Heavy Rock was originally staged in Plymouth at KARST and on Plymouth Sound. Adapted for Material Language at the New Arts centre in 2016, Heavy Rock took the form of a specially fabricated marine ply version of the wooden replica Wavebreaker mould and was installed in the grounds of the New Arts Centre transmitting sound recordings from the original Wavebreaker that was in position on the Plymouth Breakwater. Contextualising information includes a 300 word statement, research timeline, and research questions.
