The Human Garden at Spaceus
May 18 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Spring is finally here!
I will be doing a performance the HUMAN GARDEN at Spaceus MIT designX project that is currently based in Faneuil Hall. This will be the first public showing of the performance portion of the project which was first developed at Vermont Studio Center in January.
Friday, May 18 @ 8- 10 PM
1 South Market Street, #2135

This performance is part of a larger body of work LANDMARK a multimedia project http://www.laniasuncion.com/landmark/ .
The project focuses on how commercial development causes disconnect from nature, in turn, causing isolation and alienation with each other. Urban development and tampering also have caused a decline in native New England flora. I am interested in how can we become more connected to the plant life around us, not just by looking, but listening. What are they trying to say? Do they have a story to tell us that we cannot hear because our busy lifestyles do not allow it?
I’m interested in how the use of music and storytelling can create a connection to nature and begin a dialogue that grows beyond the urban landscape and brings awareness to the environment and possibilities of community connectivity in general.
I’ll be using a MIDI Biodata Sonification Device to measure the biofeedback from native New England plants mixed through an analog modulator synth. For this project, Sean Saman has composed an original score which is woven through the piece.
The performance will be the first action of this project to take place in the Spaceus creative space and will be followed by a public interactive installation in June TBA.
