Visual Soundproof by Marcia Smilack


‘This image elicits no sound
and I think I know why:
because all the edges are sealed.
Not even sound can escape.’

Marcia Smilack


This is a wonderful image and you can see the soundproofing this inspiring artist refers to. It is like being cocooned in a bubble, cradled in an embryonic sac where all is reassuringly muffled.
