WAVE CROSSINGS is Liz Phillip’s sound and site-specific installation that explores the NY Harbor to reveal waves and life under and above the water’s surface. The New York Harbor is at the mouth of the Hudson River where it empties into New York Bay and into the Atlantic Ocean. Governor’s island is a space for exploring the convergence of these bodies of water. The audience/participants explore, creating patterns that amplify and reinforce the sonic architecture of the island in Building 7a.
Experience Lab and Workshop by Liz Phillips will demonstrate her recording techniques on governors island and passing sound through objects as natural filters (like bamboo and shells) using tactile transducers.
Time: 3 pm

Liz Phillips is a pioneer in the development of electronic sound and environmental art. Her sound practice encompasses interactive sculpture and interactive installation with occasional excursions into performance and dance. Phillips’ works point toward a non-musical emergence for creative circuitry in art of the 1960s and 1970s, and specifically illustrate the interaction of homemade electronics with environmental practices.
