“Are You Here?” Sound Activation
@ International Museum of Surgical Science
1524 N Lake Shore Dr, Chicago, IL 60610
Opening Friday, January 27th, from 1PM - 5PM
On view through Sunday, March 12th
Location: Around the spiral staircase in the museum.
January 27th, 28th, and 29th, 1-5PM
You may hear someone sneeze, whisper, walk, talk, tear a paper, shift, shuffle, or sound by happenstance while walking through the stairwell. Are You Here is a site-specific installation where the visual elements occur in the mind of the participant. At the International Museum of Surgical Science, recordings of familiar sounds from everyday life and from human bodies come from unseen corners of the stairwell. This project explores the way sound embodies our physicality without the actual presence.
