A juried exhibition and presentation of three site-specific works in Brooklyn, NY (40°N, 73°W) that engage the public in experiencing global ecology on a local level. The selected projects were: Charles Goldman & Paul Benney – Adopt Le Font. Adopt-le-Font is a makeshift adoption agency for fountains located in Brooklyn, NY. It invites members of the general public to house a fountain for one-week intervals. Benoît Maubrey – One Week in the Life of a Solar Ballerina. ‘Solar Ballerinas’ is a sound installation performed by dancers whose tutus — augmented with light sensors, miniature radio receiver, contact mics, and amplifiers—transform the body in its environs into a responsive instrument that steals and mixes ambient sound. The New York Society for Acoustic Ecology (NYSAE) – Soundwalks. Hour-long ‘Soundwalks’ throughout various places in Brooklyn engage participants in attuning their ears to the sonic environment and the politics of sound.
