H:O:M:E was produced by Amy Hanley, in collaboration with L&NDLESS collective — an interdisciplinary collective creating immersive, experiential encounters through durational performance, installation and text. L&NDLESS represents the juncture of individual and collective enquiry of its members, Devika Bilimoria, Luna Mrozik-Gawler and Nithya Iyer.


Amy writes:

I explored holding and responding. I explored the possibilities of sound as a facilitator and communicator of memories, embodied and expressed. I explored themes of death, displacement, collective memory, and personal stories. These themes were informed by memories that were shared to an online portal – those stories of place and belonging were gathered by L&NDLESS and were used to create an immersive performance-based installation. This sound piece is a concentrated composition of live responses to the experiential landscape of storytelling woven by L&NDLESS collective.
