Heart n Soul presents The Forest of Deptford, an immersive 3-dimensional multi-media arts installation.
Taking Deptford as its inspiration, the installation weaves together a diverse collection of sound and music, imaginary landscapes and animal objects, 3D figures and video to create a magical place.
The installation plays with the sites and sounds of Deptford with the market a particular focus. The landscapes and the objects within them will be exhibited like market stalls and abstract videos created from imagery from the local area will be projected all around them.
To complete the installation, a soundscape has been created by mixing together field recordings from a local farm, digital creature sounds and musical scores. These sounds were created at Allsorts, Heart n Soul’s creative arts project for adults with learning disabilities as part of the Listening Season, which was led by Emmy award-winning music composer Michael Price.
The Forest of Deptford has been produced in collaboration with Heart n Soul Allsorts participants, sonic arts collective Call & Response and creative studio Could Be Good.
