Katie Ford Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania


I recorded the sounds of our shared spaces and tracked the landscapes we created through accumulation.

radio reports
sea chanties
eggs frying
wood fires

Layering conversations and clatter, paper and fabric. I sewed a translucent shelter where we could bring it all together, and we sat inside, piling a week of noises and music into a seed of sound hinting at the whole. Slide whistle and Graceland. Coyotes and lullabies.
