In May 2013 during the opening of the exhibition Sentient City I met with Tom Wolseley artist and curator of Architrope and Cabin-et project space , a shipping container installed inside Fairchild’s Garden in Hackney. We had a very insightful chat about his practice and interest in the stories and identities found in the urban landscape. A few months later we met again at the LCC’s coffee shop to re-enact the conversation and record an interview for Sensing Cities. In the sixth installment of the show, we talk among other topics about Tom’s use of the term “Transitional Spaces” in his work, Cabin-net project space as well as sound and community.

The show will be broadcast on Tuesday 3rd of September 2013 at 7:30pm to 8pm @ Resonance FM.
