Material Sight was presented to the public via two solo exhibitions installations – at the Northern Gallery for Contemporary Art (NGCA) in Sunderland in March 2018 and at Arts Catalyst Centre for Art, Science and Technology, London in June 2018. Within both spaces, Crisp created a landscape of image and sound, using scaffolding structures built into the fabric of the buildings. The audio from the four high-definition films within the installation was edited into a single, embodied soundscape that immersed the viewer as they moved around the space or sat on one of the seven, purpose-built steel benches fabricated for the exhibition.
