Sounding is a site-specific work for Building #12. Built directly from elements of the site itself, this subtle piece activates intentional and unintentional marks, structures, and sounds, quietly luring you to focus primarily on an unused sliver of space. Abstractly reflecting current use, remnants of pasts and imagined futures, this work occupies the present of this truly non-space—a crevice between an historic brick building and a newer metal clad construction in the shipyard.
