A response to the aural potential of the chosen materials, Viva Hall’s work focuses on the relationships between naturally occurring, synthetic and everyday substances.
Sustainability and food consumption both play an integral role, giving discardable substances value in their translation.
Hall examines duration and how materials fluctuate over time through site specific, text-based scores that respond to sculptural forms and the spaces they inhabit; the score opens up abstract associations. The artist creates an inclusive entry point, acknowledging that everyone experiences artwork differently, where a performance happens in the mind of the spectator. Performative interactions give these objects significance, as if they are worth serenading.
