"Let's Get Lost," a site-specific drawing by linn meyers will be complemented by an interactive sound installation, "Listening Glass" created by Rebecca Bray, James Bigbee Garver, and Josh Knowles in partnership with meyers.

Introduction

Let’s Get Lost, a large, site-specific drawing by linn meyers, will be complemented by an interactive sound installation, Listening Glass, created by Rebecca Bray, James Bigbee Garver, and Josh Knowles, in partnership with meyers. The joint projects, which will be situated in the Museum’s Walker Gallery, will feature complementary visual and acoustic components that will be activated through audience participation. This ground-breaking generative collaboration will both stimulate and rely upon the active engagement of the public, pushing existing boundaries to create new compositional possibilities. In Let’s Get Lost and Listening Glass, drawing is explored as a multi-sensory experience, inviting responses through sight, sound, and movement. Listening Glass heightens the interaction of visitors with Let’s Get Lost from contemplative observation to active involvement.
