Hannan Jones: Surface bounce and cycles

For Channels, Jones’s work Surface bounce and cycles explored what is underneath the Union Canal – its edges, its depths, the mirage of animals and objects which float under its waters. Primarily centred around sound, the artist’s work employed listening as a means of exploring multiplicity. Through collecting sounds from along the canal – both under and above the water – the work allowed listeners to move through the riverbed of the canal, reassessing their understanding of the natural world’s relationship to the human world. It was sited around Harrison Road Bridge and Ashley Terrace Road Bridge, by Harrison Park.
