Polly Stanton is an audio-visual artist and researcher. Her practice primarily explores listening as a means to navigate and map location and investigate the unseen aspects of place. Occupying the intersection of field recording, sound design, cinema and observational documentary, her work considers how sound can expand our experience of visual comprehension. In addition to her art practice she has worked professionally in the film industry in post-production sound, teaches audio-visual theory in RMIT’s School of Art and also lectures in sound design at Swinburne University’s School of Film and Animation.
