From a vibrating living room to the deadpan delivery of a performance and installation using Foley objects (domestic materials used to generate the sound effects for, in this case, acts of violence to a body), Sophie Brown’s practice uses interactive installation and performance to explore our psychological and physiological relationships with the physical world. She questions these states of experience, that are often subtle and unseen (e.g. balance and gravity) yet impact greatly on how the viewer interacts with space.

Sophie works primarily site-specifically, with her work referencing tactility, in particular the bodily relationship with surface, interior space and the objects within that space. She is particularly interested in how people navigate and negotiate different spaces, often using a range of media including sound, text and installation.
