Paula Friar: I am exploring my interest in sound and space, through time-based physical installations in the Bartlett Interactive Workshop.
Having completed my undergraduate BSc. Architecture degree also at the Bartlett, I worked for a number of years with Surface Architects on several high profile projects, including a Film Studies Centre and Graduate Centre. A series of conceptual drawings I completed at Surface have been exhibited and published in a number of architectural
magazines, including the RIBA journal.
To gain inspiration for further study, I have taken time to travel, in particular through India and South East Asia, experiencing new cultures and exploring the role architecture has within a broader cultural context. I spent a year in Indonesia studying traditional Balinese Gamelan music at the State College of Arts, Denpasar in Bali. I continue
to regularly perform music with several London based Gamelan groups and enjoy learning new, fiendish and complex drum patterns.
