Downtown Art Walk

Soundscapes is a place-specific project centered on urban issues, and includes a series of sonorous interventions that serve as a sonic mapping of urban nodes. Conceptually, the nodes and interventions represented in Soundscapes link to regional and global concerns and mirror the overall phenomenon of urbanization. Soundscapes examines sound work as an aesthetic response to urbanization and its potential as a transgressive medium within place and geography.

In addition visit the Map and Model Shop because we will be hosting a Mixmental Mapping installation. The
project documents people’s mental trip patterns overlaid on an 8ft by
4ft abstract painting of organic forms, colors, and textures.
