Soundmarks York

10th February 2024

Soundmarks is an art/archaeology collaboration between Rose Ferraby and Rob St John using sound and visual art.

In 2019 the pair created work exploring and animating the sub-surface landscape of Aldborough Roman Town in North Yorkshire, UK.

Soundmarks Aldborough was re-shown at DIG in York between October 2023 and February 2024 as Rose and Rob undertook a new period of research and practice with the Roman York Beneath the Streets project.

This work has resulted in a new exhibition of painting, sound and film – Soundmarks York – which is on show at DIG from today.

You can follow the sound and art trail exploring York’s hidden Roman history here.
