Overview I

interactive sound art, participatory performance, wearable sculpture

Premiere: June 2023, Smithsonian Hirshhorn Museum of Art.

Overview I is participatory: people put on a helmet that creates a personal soundscape to reside inside. They walk in an orbit, and occasionally hear the sounds of others as they pass on their own orbits. This piece is part of a larger set of multimedia experiments on The Overview Effect, the psychological term for the feelings many astronauts have when they see earth from space.
