We called in to see this exhibition, part of a collaboration in the Burgh Hall, Dunoon. It is there for the rest of the week- go along if you get the chance…
Soozie, a local artist (and nice person, based on our wee chat!) is making art that emerges from a dramatic change of life- a cochlear implant.
I love meeting people who are on journeys. They see things with new eyes- or in Soozies case, hear them with new ears. It made me think again about how much of the time we all spend in an artificial bubble- insulated by constant electronic static from the lovely things all around us. To speak to someone experiencing these things anew is a privilege.
Soozie has a blog, charting her experiences- here.
