Cowley Road Vision Quest

Body

A guided audio work in the form of shamanic vision quest. The listener is invited to journey imaginatively back in time through the iterations of one local road, all the way back to the Jurassic.

The work engages with current urban design debates, destabilising the image of modern roads as eternal and unchangeable, inviting reflection on what this route might look like in 100 or even 1000 years time.
