Extreme Unction Vol. 2 is part of the Season for Change programme, ‘The Space Between’. All at once a sonic installation, instrument, performance, and healing space, it is inspired by the works and life of Hildegard von Bingen, biophilia and natural and holistic architecture.
As a multi-sensory immersive environment, inspired by neurodivergent-led design alongside lo-tech, sustainable and biophilic design, the Extreme Unction Vol. 2 installation will include workshops on sustainable architectural practices, DIY ritual packs and special performance events.
Nwando alongside architect and designer Bethany Wells, will design design and build a portable piece of speculative architecture (a miniature hamam) that functions as an installation, instrument, performance space, and communal bathing space. Nwando will also complete a 30-minute piece of sound art that responds to the design challenges and creates a multi-sensory environment.
Nwando and Bethany will also explore the creative and practical design process in a workshop, with Bethany taking participants through the design of the installation and Nwando discussing the development of the material palette that embeds both audience care and environmental awareness.
