hmmmmm what are my responces to silence.......

body movement
physical contact
personal space
facial expresions

all of the above convey messages and reflect an element of intimacy or a feeling (or lack of) attraction. The exchange of messages primarily through non linguistic means, including body language, facial expressions and eye contact, tactile communication, space territory, environment and use of silence and time.

I believe silence is 'filling air time'.

Allowing silence in a conversation puts pressure on the other person. Silence can indicate hostility, and facial expressions during silence can indicate disagreement.

This cast house by Rachel Whitread is a great example of capturing something that no longer exist.


Throughout the summer of 2009 I took a road trip starting from San Francisco and ending in Las Vegas . We drove through route 50 which is known as the 'loneliest highway' in the world. This was a long drive...literally through the dessert miles away from anywhere. So this is a great example of silence.

We came across this tree filled with hundreds of trainers. It was like some kind of unique landmark.

Whilst in San Francisco we visited Alcatraz. This is also silence to me because of its isolation from the outside by the cold, strong, hazardous currents of the waters of San Francisco's Bay.

Iv also visited Auschwitz in Krakow in summer 2008.
This place is breath taking in terms of sadness and loss, which again relates back to silence.
