Landscape with Hum
Landscape with Hum (2001) is a site-specific 1-minute 45-second recording that documents an unnoticeable occurrence: the presence of a hum as captured by the right side of the artist’s stereo microphone while walking on a pasture, across and under high voltage power lines suspended four stories from the ground in an otherwise unsuspecting natural landscape. The project was carried out at 12425 NE 13th Avenue.
