Here We Are (v.2)
A Listening workshop in three sessions, in three different locations;
my contribution to Non-Cochlear Sound curated by Seth Kim-Cohen. The
workshop was accompanied by a collectively drawn wall diagram in the
gallery, charting the experiences and questions of workshop
participants in terms of attention, space and power. Click on image for brief documentation, with photography and sound recording by Chris Cuellar. Workshop booklet HERE
This is part of an on-going practice that engages with listening as a shared, communal and critical knowing. It has to do with the production of subjectivity and of dominant cartographies, but also with collective capacities of knowing and imagining that have radical transformative force. This project repurposes methods from musicology, structural acoustics and acoustic ecology, and leverages them toward a polticized understanding of space. Past iterations include critical geographies of the WTO headquarters in Geneva, the Boeing headquarters in Chicago, the underground rivers and ancient foot trails around Sulfur Springs in Tampa.
