A fully illustrated 96-page hardback publication accompanies the Sound Strata of Coastal Northumberland exhibition tour, including a CD stereo mix of the installation. This is the first comprehensive solo publication about Susan Stenger and provides detailed information about Sound Strata as well as background on the artist’s practice.
The publication includes essays by award-winning nature writer Robert Macfarlane and the writer, curator and filmmaker Katherine Waugh, an interview between the artist, Mathieu Copeland and Rebecca Shatwell, and an annotated facsimile of Stenger’s working score for Sound Strata. It also includes a full colour reproduction of the original 1838 cross-section diagram of coastal geological formations by the mining engineer Nicholas Wood.
