Shelter for Four
- Fabric, Wood, Sound, Paint
- 85" x 82" x 24"
"A listening shelter for up to four people. Both a stage and a sheltering structure, sound plays out from the piece. The sound is audio excerpts from interviews, in which participants are asked about their lived experience of connection and interdependence."
- Susan Stainman
This architectural installation includes an MP3 speaker to play excerpts from interviews conducted by Susan in which participants are asked about their lived experience of connection and interdependence (listen to a sample of the interviews here). Susan would conduct such an interview with the collector of the work, if they are willing. The dimensions of this piece are (H)85" x (W)82" x (D)24" when installed.
