Sound Canopy was a public sound art facility I designed and produced with assistance
from the Hyde Park Art Center with technical support from the Experimental Sound Studio and web support from the Splinter Group. Sound Canopy consisted of a sound system and 32 speakers mounted to the ceiling
of a construction canopy. I invited a number of local art groups and organizations to curate international sound work into
the canopy. The only requirement was that the work had to, in some way, address the situation of the pedestrians moving through
the space. Sound Canopy occurred twice in different locations within the Chicago Loop, once in 2002 (Randolph and Wabash)
and again in 2004 (State and Adams). Both iterations ran for 3 months with one artists work occupying the space for a duration
of one week.
