A Dove is a Pigeon is a Dove by Dylan Marx

room 12 ECHOES

A Dove is a Pigeon is a Dove is speculative documentation of a pigeon's stroll through Golden Gate Park, a place that once had several pigeons but now has very few. Starting on the sidewalk in the Richmond District and ending on the sidewalk in the Inner Sunset, the walk is made up of sounds recorded on site from a late summer day. Each recording is a 1-5 minute looped audio documentation of the space recorded at pigeon height. As the participant walks along, the sound of the recordings will mix with the live sounds of the walk, juxtaposing memory with the present day. In addition to the sounds, every other space contains a musing on the rock dove, as well as on the concept of infrasound, a tool the birds use to navigate their environments. Participants are invited to reflect on their own experiences with Golden Gate Park, as well as their relationship to the common pigeon.
