How can a blend of soundscape, poetics and historical research help us to understand the affective impact of public punishment on the physical landscape? This interdisciplinary project uses locative digital media to place the user at four eighteenth-century execution sites. After an introduction to the project, participants are invited to step outside to relive the terrible last days of Captain Goodere and Matthew Mahoney in 1741.

With Steve Poole (UWE), Ralph Hoyte and Phil Phelps (Satsymph) and Michael Fairfax (sound artist).

This event is part of the Bristol800 Universities Showcase Weekender.

Bristol800 is supported by:

Arts Council England, Bristol & Bath Cultural Destinations, Bristol City Council, The Society of Merchant Venturers, University of Bristol, University of the West of England
