Skylarking is an exhibition led by Ashey Holmes that took place at Soft Ground in Sheffield. It is inspired by the relationships formed through the sounds and architecture of caves, hills and public spaces. 

It features Akeem Balogun’s short story Landscape Carving.

You can also read the story on Now Then Magazine.

There are also a limited number of vinyl developed by Amrita Dhallu and designed by Rose Nordin. It includes the narration of Landscape Carving, performed by Akeem Balogun, Bel Odawa and Ashley Holmes, and a printed pull out of the piece. It is available on Bandcamp.
