Her work has been shown in museums, galleries, theatres and public spaces including the British Museum, Kettle’s Yard, UCL, the Roundhouse, Home Manchester and Cambridge Junction, where she is currently an associate artist

Tourist is Anna’s fourth extended-soundtrack collaboration with composer Will Heasman. Their work together explores applied psychoacoustics, immersive narratives and aural intimacy.

Previous collaborations include Splitter (2017), Week Nine (2020) and Idle Hour (2021). 

For b-side 2021

Anna’s site-responsive sound intervention Tourist situates participants on a bus and immerses them into a dreamy, cinematic drive around the island. 

“Anna Brownsted constructs encounters that are simultaneously familiar yet unexpected. Her work interrupts our sense of the everyday by offering an invitation: to sit, to listen, to notice. During her meticulously realised experiences anything feels possible.  It is here that her work can be found – between what’s real and what’s imaginary – and the extent to which these boundaries can actively be blurred, pushed or tested.”
