Event Description

Desire paths are well-trodden trails created by foot traffic, where the ground becomes imprinted evidence of a place that wants to be discovered, and the people who seek it out. Grab your walking stick for this edition of Desire Trails, where sculptural sound artists-including Wayne Grim and Andy Puls-will tune our ears to a whole new experience of the landscape. Hikers will meet in the Eastwing to briefly study-up on the science of sound before heading out to encounter, observe, and participate in a variety of experiences orchestrated by artists, authors, and scientists who employ analog and electronic sound-generating instruments powered by weather, solar energy, and our own bodies and voices. After two hours of foraying, all hikers will reconvene with fellow (r)amblers in the Mess Hall to enjoy a post-trek meal. This event is family friendly.

Fee: $0.00
