Temporary Listening Structure, 2008 installation view

Built to resemble a temporary traffic sign, "Temporary Listening Structure" is a site-specific installation located on a median strip that amplifies live ambient sound. By sitting on the bench provided and positioning one's head in the center of the parabolic sign, one can experience a shift in the aural spectrum. Subtle sounds such as grass swishing are emphasized and may sound as loud as a passing truck.
