JOURNEY: sound walks, travel, and traversing the land
From road trips to immigration, meditations on nationhood to outer space travel, the upcoming sound works meditate on the theme of JOURNEY through place-ness - the places we’ve been, the places we are, the places we move through, come from, escape, dwell in, get stuck, stick out, are displaced from, yearn for, and aim towards.
The idea of 'place' is not solid, but unfolding in simultaneous layers, dependent on personal embodiment, acknowledged histories, and cultural perspectives. Lucy Lippard talks about place as “multicentred,” localized in a map of memories, political and personal. “All places,” she writes, “exist somewhere between the inside and the outside view of them, the ways in which they compare to, and contrast with, other places.”
