Shannon Alonzo – Mangrove – Reflective Audio Descriptions

To accompany her site-specific mural of charcoal and paint, entitled ‘Mangrove’ Shannon has created and recorded these descriptive audio works. Shannon gives an introduction to the work and a glossary of some of the words and characters featured in the mural and recordings, followed by two reflective audio recordings. 

These are additions and enrichments to the mural and live rituals of drawing, erasing and re-drawing the work as well as intended as points of access for blind and visually impaired audiences. They can be listened to while visiting the work at The Cotton Exchange or as separate additions.
