Sound Gems

Sound gems brooch 1

In 2011 Creativity Works and the North West Sound Archive commissioned ADEPT to create a work that responded directly to the wealth of material held in the archives collection.  ADEPT created two works under the title Sound Gems.  First, a limited edition range of ‘pocket money’ priced jewellery for museum shops across East Lancashire, comprising QR Codes laser-etched onto polished wood.  When scanned with a smart phone the jewellery opens a selection of sound files selected by the artists from the Archive.

ADEPT also worked with members of the Pennine Lancashire Poetry Stanza to create a QR Poetry Trail in the grounds of Clitheroe Castle, enabling visitors to listen to and enjoy the poets’ original works, spoken by themselves, at the locations which inspired them.
