MOVING IMAGE PRIZE
Stereotypes - What are you listening to?
Dan Gray
“Headphones can offer a world of comfort and control within the disconnected and chaotic environment of a busy city. Far from tuning-out of the world, we found our subjects were wanting to tune-in and be tuned-in to. Music not only provides a soundtrack to city life, it also provides a soul.”
