Papua New Guinea sculpture garden

Virtual field trip grant

Installation concept

Program Note

What does it sound like to listen to an entire world? What would our own world sound like from afar, covered in satellites and cables? Within each sculpture is another universe, one maybe very similar to our own or maybe drastically different, governed by unfamiliar forces and energies. Inner Transmissions invites listeners into the galaxies hidden within the Papua New Guinea Sculpture Garden.
