Over the past year, artists in residence Sara Heywood and Jane Watt have worked with over 200 people who live, work or have a connection with the Alton Estate in Roehampton to gather a vibrant mix of audio-visual material. Conducting interviews and workshops with local schools, youth groups, OAP groups, Roehampton University, local businesses, workers and residents, the artists have developed a temporary installation with interactive sound sculptures and a mobile audio walking app that celebrates the area’s rich history, past and present-day experiences.
Thanks to the people of the Alton Estate and local area who have made this project possible. Reflections on Home is commissioned by Artscape, Redrow and Wandsworth Borough Council as part of the Alton Estate Regeneration.
Experience some of the sights, sounds and stories of the Alton Estate through the voices of local people.
The audio walking sound app can be downloaded for free onto a mobile phone or tablet (iOS and Android friendly).
You can follow the guided tour or choose to pop in and out at any point along the way. You may wish to use headphones for a full immersive experience.
