HELENA SLOSAR, an architect by training and currently a graduate student at Harvard Graduate School of Design, creates Hear,There, an installation of conical listening devices projecting aggressively out of the Woodside church doorways. Made to engage both the eye and ear, this acoustical intervention creates space for concentrated listening, broadcasting messages, discrete eavesdropping or speaking confessions and other interactions. Hear,There also directs the listener’s attention to the sounds inherent in the 150-year-old Woodside building and asks the question: what kind of information is ignored or overlooked because we so often take senses other than sight for granted?
