sonic pill, curtain, found site



“Exploring this already existing space
of the dormant amphitheater and the surrounding forest, visitors can join their walk with an aural investigation
into the carbon cycle and the various bonds carbon makes
that support life on Earth but also, when changed,
alter the conditions for life altogether.
The sonic pill introduces different interlocutors
that address the material entanglement
of contemporary society with carbon –
from its role in the capitalist market
to its generative function within the history of democracy,
as well as the challenge climate change presents
to social, political, and aesthetic organization
within the future.”
