Ancient Passages: Echoes of Luna City
A multi-narrative, non-linear sound installation: 30 miniature guitar amps on tripods are placed in thematic clusters around the periphery of the main space, in niches, corners, and the ends of hallways. They are unobtrusive, registering more as a layer of whispers, and they form a sonic tapestry that serves as an oral history of the future. The voices in each cluster are digital artifact, first-person monologues from specific points in the 150 years leading up to Luna City 2175; as the monologues play in a continuous, asynchronous loops, different perspectives of the events are emphasized. The audience becomes both passive and active participants; passive as they listen to the monologues, and active as their own attention and movement curates their experience.
