Dimension Sculpture Gallery Park

Dimension Gallery Sculpture Park

World Listening Day 2022 was held in the extreme heat on July 18, 2022. Small speakers were placed next to sculptures and trees throughout Dimension Gallery Sculpture Park. Next to each of the speakers were plaques giving the name of the field recordist(s) and submitted statements on how they interpreted the official World Listening Day theme, Listening Across Boundaries.

Featured field recordists included: Abby Flanagan and Ariel Wood, Alex Keller, Alyssa Ibarra, Akari Komura, Austin Davis, Bill Sherborne, Christine Hoang, Christopher McConnell, Damien Duque, Eric Brehm, Harrison Montgomery, Jae-Eun Sun, Laura Brackney, Josh Ronsen, Samuel Campos, Sarah Lucio, SV Randall, Travis Pope.

In the center of the park, Harrison set up a sonic sculpture that he designed and built. It utilized capacitive-touch technology to affect the sounds of multi-channel field recordings when touched in different areas.
