Blindscape is an audio-visual environmental performance, which uses enhanced echo location sounds of bats flying over cities and landscapes to explore a movement through the urban sprawl and the imagination, exploring a balance between the living systems of the natural world within the inner-city, and how the biological adjusts to a developing industrialisation.

Visually the project mirrors and maps the sound by detecting the amplitude on two channels, which then animates vector shapes combined with an archive of imagery across the twin screens. Conceived of a live instrument for non-linear storytelling the projections explore a form of 'synesthesia.'
