performance, Contemporary Jewish Museum
SPhotos from the SoVISA Galactic performance–a sonar wayfinding journey around the Contemporary Jewish Museum in San Francisco.
Artists Andy Slater and Fayen d’Evie performed a sonar wayfinding journey, from the outer architecture of The Contemporary Jewish Museum, to the Museum’s Blue Cube space.
SoVISA is the Society of Visually Impaired Sound Artists, a group founded by Andy Slater advocating for the inclusion of sound art in art education for the blind, and a greater presence in museums. The artists shared examples from their solo projects, including Space for the Overactive Ear and The Radical Potential of Blindness and current collaborations that traverse extraterrestrial listening sites and panopticon prisons. SoVisa technical advisors include Josh Miele (sonic technologies) and Sheri Wells-Jensen (xenolinguistics).
