Aquifer of the Spirit
Aquifer of the Spirit is a 10-minute sound work, meant to be experienced with headphones. This work is an invitation for deep listening while meditating on the present moment: welcoming our bodies, our ancestors, our traumas, our pain, longings, visions, and dreams. The piece will be accessible via QR code to visitors of the Design District and Midtown Transportation Hub.
