Fracking Futures

by HeHe, 2013.
Soundtrack & field recordings by DinahBird & Jean-Philippe Renoult

A spectacular artwork and mini-disaster by the Paris-based artist duo Hehe, (Helen Evans and Heiko Hansen), who in collaboration with The Arts Catalyst, turned FACT Liverpool’s main gallery into an industrial landscape in a timely, playful and provocative commentary on crises of global economy, threats of environmental catastrophe and struggles of public institutions in times of austerity.
HeHe asked us to come up with a soundtrack to accompany the piece, to imagine sonically what fracking might actually feel and sound like. This is our interpretation.

Fracking Futures, was commissioned by FACT in collaboration with The Arts Catalyst.
