Dream House 2017 comprises of 22 wonderful miniature rooms specially created by Norfolk-based architects, artists, makers, students and school groups. These form part of the temporary exhibition Small Stories: At Home in a Dolls’ House currently on display at the Norwich Castle Museum & Art Gallery until 25 June 2017.

The Balcony of the Best Exotic Geranium Hotel is a collaboration between myself and artist Karl Foster, my contribution being sound-based and Karl the objects and surfaces inside the room. We created the room under the direction of Mark Smith, Leisure and Education Coordinator for The Norfolk and Norwich Association for the Blind (The NNAB). As Mark is blind, his Dream Room encourages visitors to engage through sound, touch and smell. A myriad of pleasing textures and objects are await those that navigate his room.
An audio description was carefully composed with Mark to provide navigation and an insightful account of his room; furthermore additional field recordings were subtly included to further enhance the viewer’s experience.

Come and experience the room for yourself!
