You Are Here: Light, Color, and Sound Experiences
The NC Museum of Art on Blue Ridge Avenue in Raleigh has run the You Are Here exhibit from April 7 through July 22, 2018. The museum hired Arts Access to provide two audio describers who wrote and recorded descriptions for 15 out of the 21 exhibits. The recordings are available to museum visitors upon request, but the museum gave TRRS permission to provide the 15 descriptions as podcasts to enjoy with or without visiting the museum. They average about two minutes apiece. Here is the description of the exhibit from the museum's web page:
You Are Here features immersive art installations by 15 contemporary artists, including large-scale light works, sound installations, video works, mixed-media room-size environments, and site-specific projects. Some are delightfully low-tech, transforming ordinary materials into awe-inspiring visuals, while others make use of experimental new media, fusing art and technology in interactive works that change in response to the viewer. The artists in this exhibition employ a diversity of media to create intriguing experiences that engage the senses, activate the imagination, and provide connections between the viewer and the work of art.
