Chris Wood

Chris Wood’s research and practice centres around space and texture, with particular attention to sound. His work frequently uses the raw materials of field recordings, reconfiguring the realism assumed in them as an object of sensory play. He has a strong interest in interaction design as realised through audience-centered installations and situations. A parallel career as a radio producer informs this work, with speech, narrative and reportage acting as a key pillars in his practice.

Installations, workshops and performances have taken place in London, New York, Madrid, Portugal and Canada, while soundscape and radio work has been featured on Resonance FM, Stress.fm, Basic.fm, NTS Live, and The Guardian. He is currently a PhD candidate in Media Arts Technology at Queen Mary, University of London. Examples of work can be found at http://wordthecat.com
