CALLING ALL ARTISTS - Adaptations: living with change Residencies

New Orleans and the region are frequently invoked as one of the areas most vulnerable to the effects of environmental change. Our highly manipulated landscape can be seen as a microcosm of the global environment, manifesting both the challenges and possibilities inherent in the ways humans interact with urban and natural ecosystems. With nearly half of the world’s population living within 40 miles of a coastline with rising seas, the concerns of Southern Louisiana resonate globally. Adaptations Residencies invite artists to examine how climate driven adaptations - large and small, historic and contemporary, cultural and scientific - are shaping our future. Adaptations Residencies will provide artists with time, space, scholarship and staff support to foster critical thinking and creation of new works. The call is open to artists of all disciplines who have demonstrated an established dialogue with environmental and culturally related issues and a commitment to seeking and plumbing new…

2015 Flint and Steel Cross-disciplinary Combustion Residents

Flint and Steel are five week residencies designed to allow artists to join forces with academic partners. Artists and Tulane University faculty members will be united to inspire each other in the development of new work, to excite the public, and to ignite social change. Addressing the artists' desire to be more effective and have longer lasting impact with their outreach, these collaborations will empower the artistic practice with scholarship, student manpower and academic resources from Tulane. We ask artists to describe in detail how the opportunity will affect their work, to identify potential departmental partners, to propose a public component to their residency and to suggest ways in which they will engage with the local community.

Artist: Pippin Frisbie-Calder, Louisiana, January + April 2015
Faculty partner: Tim McLean, Ecology and Evolutionary Biology

Listening to the River

Previous ASITW residents, Monica Haller and Sebastian Muellauer are traveling down river for the month of July, mapping the sounds of the river from headwaters to the delta.

They are using an underwater microphone (hydrophone), a robot buoy that records the sounds, documents the route, sights and observations along the way. The culmination of the trip is New Orleans where they are planning small actions of "listening to the river.” This articulates itself as an informal "listening station” where residents are invited to specific points of the waterfront to listen. There, they settle down next to the river to hear the water passing by. The buoy suspends the hydrophone in the river. Listeners sit, lie, "plug in" to the water. It's a simple action that people often find quite powerful. The sound streams live for anyone listening from afar.

You are invited to the river’s bank to participate.

Join us at the Audubon Park "Fly" by the old riverboat dock on…
