About the Installation
A new site-specific audio installation exploring the everyday experience of housing, home, and the history of social housing.

Fleeting moments of struggle, triumph and tribulation told through everyday stories of people making good of austerity gone wrong.
The project is the culmination of two years of research, based around artist Caitlin Shepherd talking with people in Bristol, Machynlleth, Newtown and Stoke on Trent about housing, identity, emotion of home, home ownership, rent, social housing, class identity and earnings. It builds on the themes explored through recent commissions Discord (2016) exhibited at Somerset House, and Home (2017) exhibited at Knowle West Media Project.
The listening experience lasts for approximately 40 minutes, and is followed by a 20 minute
discussion of the work. This new work is part of Caitlin’s PhD research and audiences are
invited to reflect and share their experiences with Caitlin after the audio installation has ended.
There will be drinks, snacks and a facilitated conversation following the event.
Each show is for 5 people at a time, and is free but must be booked in advance.
The installation will also be open house for general visits during the day time across all three of the Bristol sites.
