Stereo Helix for Sally Hemings at the Samek Art Gallery

American Cypher: Stereo Helix for Sally Hemings opens at Bucknell University’s Samek Art Gallery & Langone Center this week. This project was commissioned by the Samek Art Gallery and the Griot Institute at Bucknell and it functions as a sonic meditation on the relationship between Sally Hemings and Thomas Jefferson.  The sounds in this work are from a 200 year old bell owned by Sally Hemings and field recording from Thomas Jefferson‘s Monticello. Here is a video document of this public sound art  installation.
