This year, Pikes Falls Visual Artist-in-Residence, Jennifer Lauren Smith, will present AIRFLOWWW, a program featuring time-based works created over the past 8 years. Focusing on the intersection of natural and fabricated auditory experience, Smith stages visual manifestations of sound. Whether documented on video or performed amidst a live audience, her work explores the physicality of the process of listening, and our ability to supply and invent sound information to fill in visual milieu.
