Four Channels

March 2 – April 14, 2018

Exhibition Walkthrough w/ Artist: Friday, March 2, 4pm
Opening Reception: Friday, March 2, 5 to 8pm

Four Channels was initially inspired by Block’s participation in the CEAM Artist Residency in October 2016. The artist's interest in acoustic ecology, the relationship of human beings to their environment, as mediated through sound, led her to propose a site specific sound installation at CEAM, and an exciting partnership with the Guana Tolomato Matanzas National Estuarine Research Reserve (GTMNERR). The sound installation will present “raw materials – field recordings, scientific data, photos from on site stems, in two different contents – the museum space and science pedagogy space.” The development of Four Channels stems from Block’s engagement with the conservation research work done at the GTMNERR, as well as her interest in the presentation of “science education to the public – dioramas, interactive features, living specimen presentation, narrative, and artistic design.”
