Of Earth and Sun

I had a really wonderful year last year as a Fellow at the Frank-Ratchye Studio for Creative Inquiry at Carnegie Mellon working on a project for the Center for Sustainable Landscapes at the Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens, and teaching a course on sound art at CMU. Below are a couple of links to articles about the project, which I will continue to work on from afar in my new position as a postdoc at Grinnell College.
