“Hermit saints who journeyed to the wilderness in the hope of hearing a truly meaningful ‘voice from above’ have long been of interest to me; it was looking for a contemporary equivalent that led me to work on a project with people who hear voices. One of the voice-hearers said that “hearing voices feels like picking up peoples’ thoughts on the ether”. This struck me as highly relevant to the age of mobile phones and the internet as we are now all transmitters and receivers of information, invisible information that comes from the sky” Susan Adams.
