How do you remember lives lost far too young? Pioneering sound artist Justin Wiggan creates a 'sonic memory garden' at Ty Hafan Children's Hospice in Wales. He combines the thoughts of parents with everyday sounds of the hospice in a specially composed soundscape. In the playroom, children are acting out an underwater adventure. In the garden, a little group are playing on the swings. But the heavy paraphernalia of life-limiting illness is everywhere; suction machines, oxygen machines. tubes. The project is unbearably sad. But it's also inspirational.
