Cities and the Field is a multimedia gallery exhibition detailing Stuart Hyatt’s ongoing sound mapping projects. Most recently exhibited at The Harrison Center for Arts in Indianapolis, Cities and the Field invites viewers to experience the invisible layers of the built environment.
From the Harrison Center:
On the west of the gallery, fragments of photographs taken during Hyatt’s long walks along Washington Street provide imperfect glimpses into the multivalent reality. In the center is a collage of our built environment, where organic materials slowly assemble into known ordering systems, only to dissolve into the field of invisibles. Visitors may pass through this assembled portal - moving from the existing to the speculative - to explore Hyatt’s web-based sound map, listen to the new FIELD WORKS album, peruse a library of experimental mapping techniques, and view Nat Russell’s Calvino-inspired Washington Street watercolors.
