Lighthouse 40°N, 73°W: Governors Island
2015 New York Electronic Art Festival || May 21 – July 20, 2015
Broadcast through headphones to individual listeners in the kitchen of a vacant 19th-c wood frame house, Lighthouse 40°N, 73°W evokes a layer of New York City’s history while tilting the public/private experience of sound towards listener-as-performer. Audiences drift through an aural estuary without leaving the room.
Created with Jim Dawson.
Curated by Carol Parkinson || Produced by Harvestworks
Lighthouse was funded by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature via NYSCA’s Independent Artist Commission in Film, Media, and New Technologies.
