Today’s culture has shaped us to all be great speakers. But good conversation doesn’t start with speaking, it listens. True listening is a two-way street and participation comes not only by taking in the information, but responding as well. Each piece in my show highlights a place in today’s dialogue where I see the least amount of listening. As each piece informs the conversation, it is up to the viewer to then guide the conversation by listening and responding.
Note: I have provided a photo gallery with images from my thesis show below. Each of the 5 stations within my show was interactive and asked viewers to perform a certain task in order for the work to grow and listen as well. Please be sure to read each respective tag to fully understand the purpose of the station. I would also like to note that I am in the process of building a virtual tour of my thesis space that would allow you to participate in each interaction digitally. Once it is done, I will make sure to update this page immediately so that you can enjoy my thesis as much as those attending!
