Resounding Change: Sonic Art and the Environment

An exhibition featuring contemporary artists who explore environmental issues through sound. Artworks encourage visitors to listen more closely to the natural world and think about how sound is being used in a time of environmental crisis. Works, which range from a large-scale video installation to more intimate encounters with sound through headphones, pose the following questions: What does sound tell us about our place in the world? What aspects of environmental change can we better understand through sound? What can sound tell us about the current conditions that shape our planet? Leonard is showing some of her Antarctic work including penguin-bone instruments, graphic scores, and audio recordings of compositions.
