Matthew P. Hopkins is a Sydney based artist working with sound, painting, drawing, objects, video, and text based work. An ongoing interest for Hopkins is how sound, particularly processed voice, might be seen as grotesque and liminal in nature, and in turn how this sound can function as an axis point which connects the optical and the aural through absurd, often alogical methods. Lullaby for Marbles is a sound work initially produced in an attempt to help a cat named Marbles settle into their new home and overcome the anxieties of an inner-city environment.
Matthew’s reflection on the making of this text-sound work features in the print edition of un Magazine 11.1.
