In 2012, Deborah Egan, sound recordist Martin Hogg and I developed a prototype audio-walk along the first section of the Sheffield-Tinsley Canal. The walk formed part of my PhD research at Sheffield School of Architecture.
While we would have liked to develop this work further we were lacking sufficient time and resource - however the audio lives on as a legacy version of the site here:
I thought that this form of site-specific audio intervention could be an idea that could be developed further as part of the Tinsley Art Project - particularly as the canal towpath is such a linear site that is experienced by many people as a place to walk / run / cycle.
I'd be happy to discuss the background + findings of this project further if its of interest.
