A Life, A Presence Like the Air invited audiences to sit and listen to a site specific sound installation, exploring everyday stories of home, housing, family, work and day to day experiences of triumph and tribulation. The experience lasted for approximately 40 minutes, and consisted of site, a built installation, documentary, poetry, print and musical content.

The work was installed in a play area at Waring House, Redcliffe, Bristol, at The Park Community Centre, Knowle West, and in the Vestibules at Bristol City Council. A Life, A Presence Like the Air toured for 10 days, was funded by the Arts Council England and made in collaboration with Esther Tew, Dan Halahan, Rosie Strang and Kit Jones. Supported by Spike Island, Bristol City Council and Knowle West Media Centre.
