A new exhibition of digital sound prints by Cath Walshaw: Wavelength.
Artist statement: “I’m interested in new perspectives emerging through digital developments, which challenge our understanding of the world.

In examining these shifts in how we understand our lives, my practice seeks to fuse together the past, the present and the future.”
