dust & shadow acoustic ecology salon

A study room, an immersive installation and a portal into a parallel present or a possible future. It is a place shapeshifting between a misplaced listening bar, a forgotten lounge, or a panpsychic resonance station. An exploded publication. The visitors are invited to explore, to piece a story together from scattered hints and fragments. A story about attuning to the rhythms of the desert, told through sound, light, objects and ambience. A story that can only be known through material traces and speculation.

Listen, browse, read, meditate. In company or in solitude. In solidarity with those unheard others you inhabit the desert with.
