On Itinerant

2008-03-28

Teri Rueb describes Itinerant and quotes excerpts from the project’s vocal track. The installation-style piece uses a GPS system and a headseat. As the participant walks through the allotted space, the GPS cues various recordings. Rueb claims to want “to implicate the participant as a charged body in public space whose movement and presence become critical agents in structuring the meaning of the work.”
