overhearings is a site-specific sound installation in response to the peregrine falcons who have resided at Mana Contemporary for over two decades. This 2-channel work will be located in the recesses of Mana’s 4th Floor restroom area. It centers the idea that, despite our close proximity to these creatures, what we know about the peregrine falcon is what we imagine the falcon to be. It is a story of contrasting textures, call and response and a personal reflection on our projections and compassion.
