[Apr 11-15] Peter d’Agostino: World-Wide-Walks / ICE

dagostine-top

World-Wide-Walks / between earth & water / ICE is a video-web-sound installation of Peter d’Agostino’s video walks performed at glaciers in Iceland, Alaska & Argentina. These sites at the top and bottom of the globe provide compelling evidence of escalating man-made climatic changes. The World-Wide-Walks projects, initiated by d’Agostino in the 1970s, now combine elements of natural, cultural & virtual identities: complimentary realities of walking through physical environments and of virtually surfing the web. The exhibition is presented in a surround- soundscape composed by Reese Williams as evolving resonant glacial dynamics within the complex array of video images, maps, and texts.

Reese Williams is a sound artist and practitioner of Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy, working in Rhinebeck and New York City. His explorations with sound involve creating “fields of sound” for installation, for download on the internet or for performance settings. Underlying all of his work is an interest in wave phenomena, micro-harmonics and micro-rhythmic events. His instrument is a laptop with simple digital tools, and his sound sources range from sine waves to diverse bits of audio grabbed from the internet. Some of his recent work is available for listening at: http://reesewilliams.bandcamp.com
