The Summer Flurries presents a landscape of droughts, dry lakes and wildfires from Lake Clifton in Western Australia. A postcolonial invasion from somewhere else inverts the deep history of Dublin’s spoken and scribed streets with sounds of wattlebirds and Australian Shelduck. Participants experience the meshing of two very different locations as they hunt for invisible traces and track the movement of water. The piece aims to create linkages at different scales across human and nonhuman worlds. The Summer Flurries is an outdoor spatial sound art walk around a Dublin location utilising high resolution GPS as part of The Sixth Shore project.
