Personal profile

Research interests

Sound, moving image, photography & Auditory culture

Taylor’s research is focused on both ongoing practice-led activity and recently, Auditory Culture

Auditory Culture concerns the phenomenon that our understanding and interpretation of our environment is dominated by visual stimuli where sonic elements are often subjugated by the prevailing visual experience. The way in which we relate to and ‘read’ our everyday world is influenced by this emphasis on sight over sound. Often we disregard or take for granted the nature of the sonic landscape we inhabit. As technology becomes ever more prevalent in our world our social and public environment has become a place cluttered with noise generated by the increasing application of technology (mobile phones, public safety announcements etc.), irreversibly altering our auditory experience. He has worked in collaboration with the Academy of Creative and Performing Arts, Leiden University, The Netherlands, on research into Auditory Culture.
