Audio description for the cinema is a way to allow a blind or visually impaired public to follow, and hopefully enjoy, the experience of going to the cinema. Unlike the more common audio description found on DVD’s and increasingly on television broadcasting, audio description for the cinema encourages accessibility in a public arena rather than the home. Audio description lays down an additional soundtrack over the original film, which uses verbal description as a substitute to the visual image. The method in which each film is described varies greatly depending on the film in question.

“One day indecision will get the better of me” combines three works together specifically for the group show “Impromptu Affairs”. A large backlight poster, originally made for the Expodium show in Hoog Catharijne lights up the rear corner of the gallery space, it’s arresting luminance belying the informal manor of its simple installation, from a curtain rail, in front of six deconstructed tube lights. Six simply hung tube-lights masked by three coloured banners of translucent plastic, colour the entrance to the gallery. Addressing the light installation a portable record player rests on an impromptu table. On the record an image is described by an English man. The description was done by Bob Robinson, a professional audio describer working primarily on describing Hollywood Cinema. The described image is the second of the two images shown at the Expodium show in Hoog Catharijne.
