Hillary Goidell describing works by Anna Seymour, Fayen d'Evie, Pippa Samaya and Andy Slater
Hillary Goidell 'To Catch a Thing in Flight' (2021)

To Catch a Thing in Flight (2020) is the third translation in a chain of ekphrastic works catalysed by Fayen d’Evie. It offers an audio and textual description of the gestures, facial expressions and movements performed in an earlier video work, Shape of an Echo (2019) by Anna Seymour, Fayen d’Evie and Pippa Samaya, which was filmed at the historic prison HM Bendigo. Shape of an Echo is itself a translation of an original sound work, Hauntings (HM Castlemaine) (2019) by Andy Slater, a sound artist who is blind, and who composed the work from field recordings taken along corridors, cells and dungeons of a similarly historic gaol in Castlemaine. The star-like architecture of both gaols at Castelmaine and Bendigo, emulates English and American prisons from the early nineteenth-century, designed to control deviant citizens through surveillance, sensory deprivation, solitary confinement, and enforcement of silence.
