Day 6 @ ITP: Video and Sound

Week 1
Assignment #2: Reactions to sound walk:
"Her Long Black Hair" by Janet Cardiff

I listened to this sound walk in two parts, the first part while riding on the subway and the rest while waiting for a ferry, on the ferry, and walking through Brooklyn Bridge Park. It ended while I was walking through the park and then I listened more attentively to the sounds around me (insects, people talking, birds, construction, the BQE) felt like I had two microphones taped on either side of my head. In a way life kind of sounded more like a sound walk after listening to this. I also enjoyed the inclusions of what felt like old and historical-seeming writings read by actors(?) I actually also did not look at the images until after listening to it, and the images definitely change it for me and give it more context.
