The exhibition includes a film with surround sound and sculptures of human shapes. 

  • The film has open captions. 
  • An audio description of the film is available on headphones. You can find these in the corridor on the way into the gallery. 
  • Elements of the soundtrack can be experienced physically through vibrating benches in the exhibition.
