Sounds in 6 Cities | Stephanie Simek


May 8 – 28, 2014 | Littman Gallery

Reception: Friday, May 23, 2014 | 5–8pm

The Littman Gallery will present Sounds in 6 Cities, a series of video monitors displaying real time footage of sound sculptures that have been distributed to points in the USA, United Kingdom, Canada, Chile, Iceland, and Australia. The instruments, each with their own unique sound, will operate based upon changes in the locations’ weather. The webcams continually follow their movements and send the videos back to the gallery, where they play alongside of one another through May 28th.

Sounds in 6 Cities is funded in part by the Regional Arts & Culture Council.

Stephanie Simek lives in Portland, OR, where she makes experimental works using sound, electronics and natural materials. Recent projects include a room-sized crystal radio and a magnetic levitating sculpture. This past March, Stephanie was an artist-in-residence at Museum of Contemporary Craft, where she continued her work with radio sculptures.
