Fissures, Holes, Limbs: breathing dislocated scalesis a participatory sound walk with video projections, site-interventions and objects. The walk invites people to shift scales and cycles of time from daylight to moonlight. Together, we will follow the night’s lead, extend, support and carry limbs, walk in a band, with wind and sway with microbial rhythms. Our walk is guided by night sounds, traces and images recorded on site.
Fissures, Holes, Limbs: breathing dislocated scales considers the ways we move together, leave traces, explore, and excavate. How do we shape the language of the night? What is the role of the hiker and what kinds of bodies hike?
Walk Time: 40 minutes
Walk Level: Moderate with some uneven terrain, turns and low declines.
