VOICES is a public artwork comprising seven tubular bells. The work was developed from stories gathered in the Craigieburn community. The words circling each bell were spoken or written by locals as they talked of living and working in Craigieburn. The sounds of the tubular bells emerged from these discussions.
Motion sensors in each bell respond to viewer's movement, creating the sequences in which the bells play.
In connecting with Craigieburn through conversation, VOICES embodies and speaks of place as it is experienced and enjoyed by the local community. VOICES draws people together through community-generated music, playing the music of Craigieburn.
VOICES was commissioned by Lend Lease for Hume City Council.
