Outdoor Installation

Invasive Species uses mixed media to develop a composite understanding of the Cut as a balanced and healthy ecosystem. Field recordings from the Cut, archival media, and personal narratives from interviewees are overlaid in a lush soundscape. This sonic habitat integrates and amplifies all voices of the land, highlights summer as a season of growth, and presents the cyclic awakening that takes place every day in this urban ecosystem. During the performance, the sound is projected toward the 18th Street bridge and used throughout the video projection, mixed reality experience, and gallery exhibition.
