Richard Allen's work investigates the agency and theatricality of objects through the making of sound installations, performances, films, essays and publications. He makes sound and visual works with theatrical props, stage hardware, novelty items, instruments, machines, apparatuses and artefacts that play with how narratives and animations are formed between objects, sounds and spectators. He has presented work at the National Review of Live Art (Glasgow), Chapter Arts Centre (Cardiff), and Oriel Moystn (Llandudno). You might remember Richard from 2012's Garage Band, and as one of our SENSE commissions in 2013. He is currently working on The Killers, a new audio work for roadside diners, based on the Ernest Hemingway short story. He is Senior Lecturer in Fine Art at the University of Worcester School of Art (UK) where he is the co-founder of the Fabrication Research Group.
