Each instrument explores ways of listening, knowing, and “tuning into” that build on non-eurocentric, non-masculine histories, and so may not speak to all audiences. These are not scientific instruments, but they do help people produce knowledge.
Exploring or examining - those are scientific or even colonial terms. Categorizing, analyzing, “learning the science behind” something.
Instead these instruments invite intimacy with hidden landscapes, or shared secrets hiding in plain sight – like a fourth color, or an untranslatable word.
As these projects progress, I’ll continue posting here with more about each instrument:
