Architecture of Soul Sound
September 14, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
ARCHITECTURE OF SOUL SOUND by Shay Youngblood is a three part performance about the connections between architecture, memory, history and the environment.
Architecture of Soul Sound the performance.
Architecture of Soul Sound was inspired by my research on the connections between architecture, memory, history and the environment during travels to Japan, China, Hawaii, Texas and New Mexico. Environmental soundscapes, video clips, recorded interviews, a giant stack of Jenga blocks, a narrated forest fable and performers activate the space. Audience members are invited to interact with the set/installation and contribute memories of home, history revisions and sustainability practices. This project investigates what it means to be homeless in the twenty-first century, how we can create community locally and globally and ways to decolonize the mind and sustain Mother Earth through concrete acts of love and resistance.
