WILDFIRE at SPRING/BREAK Art Show in NYC
March 4 @ 8:00 am - March 9 @ 5:00 pm
Co-Curators Megan C. Austin and Ashlie Flood will be exhibiting Harmonic Laboratory’s Jon Bellona’s WILDFIRE at the SPRING/BREAK Art Show in New York City, which will be open to the public from March 4 – March 9, 2020.
WILDFIRE is a sound art installation that plays back a rush of various wildfires across an array of 16 speakers at the speed of actual wildfires. WILDFIRE transports the visitor to the site of each disaster, forcing them to corporeally unpack the effect of these wildfires on our terrain, and the larger effect of humans on the environment. In keeping with this year’s Spring/Break Art Show theme “IN EXCESS,” WILDFIRE confronts us with the reality of what happens when our excessive consumption of natural resources goes unchecked.
