Sonic Acts hosts six participants in the home-based residency programme 'Overexposed' which deals with pollution and its effects on everything living and non-living.

Andrea Gonzalez and Arif Kornweitz of Ja Ja Ja Nee Nee Nee produce this series of conversations with residents about artefacts that have moved their practice in a lasting way.
