Sonic Dreams Installation Warren Shaw

Sonic Dreams documentation online

Sonic Dreams was a sound installation completed in 2006, the first major project to include sound as the primary medium. Using a dynamic soundscape the work sought to alter the perception of space.

Infiltration documentation online

Infiltration is mediation between the role of man-made sounds, and the imposition of such sounds, on the existing environment. Initially conceived and presented as an installation in 2007.


Infiltration was developed from a series of walking and listening exercises through the modern environment. Using a stereo set up the work imposed itself upon the already existing environment, focusing our attention on the formidable impact of modern technological sounds.

Sound Forms Warren Shaw Poster Exhibition

Sound Forms : Solo exhibition (2015)

Sonic and visual artist Warren Shaw presents his first solo show ‘Sound Forms’ from the 1st - 30th of April (Wed to Sat 11am - 4pm) at The Rooftop Gallery and Workshops in Corby, Northamptonshire. The solo show was awarded as part of the Watch This Space Prize from the annual Corby Open exhibition which Shaw was awarded in 2013.


In the exhibition Shaw combines thoughts on sound in visual, aural and literary forms creating diverse connections between the senses. Using a wide range of media from sculpture and installation, to painting and drawing, the works question our perceptions and encourage a new way of seeing and hearing.


The Rooftop Gallery & Workshops


Accrochage is a group exhibition showing recent works from graduating MA Fine Art students from Northampton University alongside connected artists presented and sponsored by Gallery202 at Albus3 Arts in Northampton from the 3rd - 13th of May 2016.


Accrochage has a literal translation of collision and when considering a group show by contemporary artists the notion of collision is ever present in the arrangement of such diverse artistic practice. Not to say that this is a themed exhibition but that it is an action that is happening, an anti-theme, that reveals the coming together of individual artistic exploration and experimentation.


The works themselves explore a whole spectrum of experimental subject matter. Some consider notions of transcendence and materiality taking materials out of context and pushing our spatial relationship as a body with objects and placement. Others deal with delicate obsessions which react and flow through a connection with the context of site specific works. Meanwhile some works involve our relationship with time and the role that our senses play in discovering our own experience.
