with WNDR Museum
“Under/Standing” is an audio installation currently on exhibit at WNDR Museum in San Diego
(and will soon open in other locations in the US, including Seattle, Boston, and Chicago).
The installation uses “audio projectors” to create a sound cone, from inside which a visitor to the museum can hear a poem performed by one of ten writers: Stephanie Barber, Amelia Gray, Kate Greenstreet, Gabino Iglesias, Dorothea Lasky, Ada Limón, Jamie Mortara, Jae Nichelle, Mary Oliver, and Bud Smith. It’s as if the listener is enveloped by their voices.
Although the effect isn’t the same, here you can listen to all the readings.
