Show 175: How far from home are we?

An Illustrated Radio Journey By Anna Keleher and Claire Long Journey Collaborators, Rebecca Beinart, Claire Long and Anna and Mark Keleher.
Based on a journey from the UK to Helsinki and back by land and sea, the “illustrated radio journey” sits somewhere between sound art and travel documentary.

Based on a journey from the UK to Helsinki and back by land and sea, the “illustrated radio journey” sits somewhere between sound art and travel documentary. On-site recordings, ambient sounds, creative reflection and narration are woven together to give the listener glimpses of the experiences of the journey. Collaborative drawings and tally-sticks also created on the journey provide a visual counterpart to the radio piece. The illustrated radio journey lives on the web at http://journey.uber.com and through a series of coordinated installations and radio broadcasts.

Claire Long and Anna Keleher have been collaborating since October, 2007. Their collaborative practice arose from shared interests in archaeology, Dartmoor, walking and sound collection and has evolved through continued exploration of place, site-specific and sound-based works.
