Lecture: Harris and Shanken - Tuning In and Spacing Out

Tuning In and Spacing Out (31:57).  A presentation that explores sound and space as modes of understanding environmental phenomena. Drawing on a variety of examples from sound art, visual art, and science,  Yolande Harris and Edward Shanken weave together extreme ideas from the mythic and scientific significance of marine mammals to the surprising interconnectedness of the sea and outer-space. A consideration of how ways of experiencing space through sound modulate between fact and fantasy, actual and virtual. Presenters: Edward Shanken, University of Amsterdam and Yolande Harris, University of Leiden/Orpheus Institute. Sonic Acts: Session 5 - 2010.
