Dream Shroud Shelter

room 9 ECHOES

kara lynch presents a sound walk, dream | shroud | shelter // Oxley Nature Center, 6700 Mohawk Blvd, Tulsa, OK 74115 via Echoes Explorer App // May 27 through summer 2021

dream | shroud |shelter, is a sound-walk installation sited at Oxley Conservation Center. In conversation with Sarah Ahmad's engagement with the Tulsa Race Massacre and legacies of U.S. state sanctioned imperialist violence, this ambient sound installation will draw from deep listening of the installation sites and the archive. 'dream' speaks to Sarah's investigation of the American Dream and the Dream deferred that the Tulsa Race Massacre reifies -- and it literally welcomes dreaming. 'shroud' and 'shelter' propose a sonic remembrance, collective wail, shield, refuge, and sanctuary within which to remember those lives lost to racial violence and its aftermaths, honor those who have survived, and draw close, the restorative power of the natural world around us. Each day between May 27 and June 1, a new sound layer will be added and accumulate into a living memorial. This opt-in sound walk is free and available to the public.

Follow the link or QR code to access this walk and download the Echoes Explorer Mobile app onto your mobile device to experience 'Dream Shroud Shelter' in-situ.  We recommend bringing headphones or bluetooth speaker and downloading this sound-walk for streaming before arriving at Oxley to ensure high quality streaming without taxing data on your device.
