Remote Viewing by Patricia Walsh

Patricia Walsh was one of the first artists to be commissioned by In Certain Places. Her artwork, Remote Viewing, is a seven-minute soundscape, which was played in various venues across the city centre over a two-week period in summer 2006.

The title, Remote Viewing, refers to the psychic phenomena of extra-sensory perception (ESP). The sound piece includes an instrumental passage called ‘Eternally’ by the jazz bandleader Cyril Stapleton, and a series of extracts from conversations that explore ethereal beings and environments.

Played twice a day in cafes and a shopping centre, the artwork caught people unawares, drawing them into an intriguing audio experience, and shifting perceptions of time and place.
