On June 4th and 5th, we exhibited an interactive installation of Material Feels, titled Conversations with the Material World, as a part of Sound Scene, at the Hirschhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington D.C. The work features four sculptures, each accompanied by a narrated soundscape designed with the material, maker and process in mind. This episode is the first in a four part special, featuring each soundscape: Fiber Scroll, Wood Arch, Glass Rope and Clay Spirals. Associate Producer Liz and I are working on various iterations of the project and looking to show Conversations with the Material World at festivals, museums and interactive art spaces. The fiber scroll featured in this episode was created by Selena Loomis.
