Norwegian artist Jana Winderen records sounds above and below the surface of our blue planet to compose site-specific sonic environments. For five days during Miami Art Week 2019, she invites you to step inside the Collins Park Rotunda on Miami Beach, for The Art of Listening: Under Water. Miami’s waterways, the Barents Sea and the Tropical Oceans come together within the spherical space, to immerse you in an acoustic collage.
The Art of Listening: Under Water portrays the fragile and complex beauty that circulates through the currents of the interconnected marine world. Winderen’s ephemeral sound installation promises to leave us with a lasting impression. Those who take time to float into the sensory experience will take away a new understanding of sonic relationships that echo across our seas.
Exploring a global issue of growing concern, this episode with Jana Winderen is the perfect finale for 2019. Visit our website, to hear other conversations centered on environments at risk and explore opportunities to engage with our new and ongoing initiatives.
