Jocasta Lucas

    Jocasta Lucas was a sound artist based in London.
    Her works focused on the forgotten and unspoken in everyday life, people that aren’t noticed, words that aren’t said and dreams that aren’t chased.

    Jo was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 29. In a defiant gesture, she and a group of friends determined to walk the Great Wall of China for charity. But for Jo, the walk was of special significance; two years previously, she watched her sister Justine die from the same disease.

    Sadly, despite initially showing signs of recovery after radical surgery, Jo also succumbed in 2007.

    BBC Radio 4 repeated Jo's self-made documentary 'A Great Wall' on December 21st 2007 in her memory. Jo was a postgraduate student at Goldsmiths, studying composition in the Electronic Music Studios from 2002-3.
