After a severe storm surge in the future, the elevated water table has turned the Hirshhorn Sculpture Garden into a marsh habitat. The sunken garden has been colonized with new cacophonous forms of life, making trouble for the garden’s caretaker who maintains the sculptures amid the destabilizing changes.
Join the caretaker on this site-specific audio installation that overlays the presently well-groomed Sculpture Garden with the dissonant sounds of future disruption. Play an excerpt from the piece here and look at the symbolic score of the walk here.
SEEP made its debut at the DC Listening Lounge exhibit Sound Scene: Dissonance held at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden on July 8, 2017. SEEP continues to be available to experience for free on the smartphone app izi.TRAVEL.
