Felicity Ford is undertaking a PhD entitled The Domestic Soundscape and is investigating ways of presenting everyday sounds to audiences. Her last major project, The Missability Radio Show was an Internet-based participatory project focussed around the design of disability-related equipment and drew her into the artist’s use of radio. The Missability Radio Show was exhibited at Oxford Brookes’ MA Showcase, in the Prick Your Finger haberdashery window and at The UK Stitch’n’Bitch day, and is featured on the Social Design website.
