Description
How might we listen to landscape in new ways?  Artist Teri Rueb has asked this question for the past twenty years through her land-based art practice that blends sound and environment using new mobile media.  From the Back Bay Fens to the Berlin Tiergarten, her works have woven audio recordings into the landscape using custom interactive sound playback software that allows sounds to play in response to visitor's movement through the environment.
