Coming Soon
CCAD Junior Seminar in collaboration with the Learning Site Audible Dwelling

Coming Soon is a collaboration between Junior Seminar students at Columbus College of Art & Design and the Learning Site Audible Dwelling. Coming Soon brings together personal reflections of Columbus residents and civic leaders on the ecological possibilities for their city. In response to a series of questions about what it means to build, maintain and live an environmentally conscious urban life, residents voice their opinions about the increasingly uneasy relationship between city and nature. Interweaved throughout these questions and answers are samples of sounds of Ohio’s greener pastures, aural meditations on the long history of agriculture in this state and the noises that once filled the very parking lot site where Audible Dwelling sits today.

Conceived, researched and recorded by students, Coming Soon is in conversation with Audible Dwelling about visions for a sustainable future.

CCAD Professor Tim Rietenbach with students Ken Aschliman, Jeremiah Caudill, Silver Corbin, Josh Culberson, Annica Damico, Quinn Kellogg, Lisa Kozlosky, Taylor Leaman, Bailey Ruhlen, Michelle Ross, Amanda Scharf, Mike Smith, Carli Sombat, Tosha Stimage, Ryan Walters and Joe Wyman

Location: Audible Dwelling in the parking lot on CCAD campus at corner of N. Washington and E. Long Streets Map
Time: 11:00 a.m.

Chine-collé
Ross Caliendo, Todd Pleasants, Alex Ross, Brian Sharrock

Immediately following the Emergency Alert Siren, the sound performance Chine-collé will layer consistent tones with the aim to extend the spectacle of the siren. The EAS is a symbol of imminent threat and represents a culture and economy of fear that emerged in the 1950s and continues today. When sounded the siren raises the public’s awareness to the exact time and “it was only a test” regiment. The area will be blanketed with a drone that recalls the effect of the nearly 120 decibel test alarm blast. By matching the intensity of the siren, people in hearing distance to Audible Dwelling will re-experience the redundancy of the weekly siren as a new drone continues for 2 hours 40 minutes, the total number of minutes the siren blasts in one full year (the EAS sounds for 3 minutes every week).

Numerous EAS sirens are located around Columbus. The mechanical horn and distress signal have become ubiquitous in our environment. By utilizing the location of Audible Dwelling in downtown Columbus, listeners enter into dialogue with an infrastructure of defense and distress and the impact it has on public consciousness. Chine-collé explores the relevance of city ordinance and alters the audible layers that comprise the sound-scape of Columbus.

Location: Audible Dwelling in the parking lot on CCAD campus at corner of N. Washington and E. Long Streets Map
Time: 12:00 p.m.

Aluminum Foil Mountain and Worm Man
Aimee Sones and Ryan Agnew in collaboration with the Learning Site Audible Dwelling

Made of an everyday household material, Aimee Sones’s Aluminum Foil Mountain is a sculpture and day-long action that questions notions of planned obsolescence, consumption of natural resources and conflicted intersections of mining and agriculture. Sones collaborates with the physical qualities of the Learning Site Audible Dwelling to create a large, temporary sculpture of aluminum foil over one speaker house. Ryan Agnew’s Worm Man consists of sound recordings of the usually unheard and out-of-sight labors of worms churning and fortifying the earth. The sounds are amplified from both speaker houses. Agnew’s evening performance across the asphalt parking lot draws on concepts of displacement and habitation in Audible Dwelling.

Globalization = Americanization?
CCAD Honors Seminar in collaboration with the Learning Site Audible Dwelling

Globalization = Americanization? is a collaboration between honor students at Columbus College of Art & Design and the Learning Site Audible Dwelling. It unfolds in the form a public debate with two opposing arguments about whether or not globalization is quite simply the Americanization of the world. Addressing issues related to mainstream media, national identities, new kinds of locality, public and private space and technologies, each speaker house of Audible Dwelling vocalizes a pro or con opinion about prescient topics related to America’s role in world affairs. Globalization = Americanization? is researched, written and recorded by students.
