Audio descriptions of artworks by Simon Phillips in the exhibition, Sense and Sensitivity, with Dawn-joy Leong, 2021. Recordings by DADAA.

Audio transcript: 16 August at 11:50am. Colour image of wild weather at the top dark grey blue clouds form with lighter grey cloud further in the distance and just below and land mass reach out across from the right into the ocean and in the foreground waves and sea spray hitting a rocky lookout area centre right and wild ocean water swelling and misty across the bottom like smoke as it hits the rocky out look. The ocean in the distance looks deep and dark in naves blues and White Sea pray swirling with bright turquoise ocean near the rock ledges. The image of the ocean during wild weather gives a sense of concern but the feeling of witnessing some thing powerful and majestic at the some time.

Sense and Sensitivity celebrates the unique sensorial place of autistic artistry in the world via the lens of landscape photographer, Simon Phillips, and the deep listening of performance artist Dawn-joy Leong.

In a kaleidoscope of beautiful imagery and subtle sound, this remarkable collaboration privileges the feelings of both artists for the world; how they engage with it through what they see, hear and touch; revealing their exquisite appreciation for themes of diversity, balance, place and timelessness.

Exhibition open 17 November – 15 December 2021.
