"Through Walls" was a sound piece created for Audiograft 2011 where people inside a room could hear sounds through the walls or through the glass window. Viewer-listeners could press their ears on the walls or the glass window, or use a listening device like a tumbler, funnel, horn, stethoscope etc. to enhance their natural hearing. Speakers played sound into the walls - a track of random domestic sound recorded in Shirley's house. These sounds were hardly audible in the room but could be heard if you put your ear or a listening device to locate them. Walls and plate glass surfaces acted both as amplifiers and filters to the sounds heard through them.
