Elisa Ferrari in Residence

Nov 1, 2017 — Mar 1, 2018



While in residence at Western Front, Elisa Ferrari developed lilithlithlithlithlithlith, a multimodal sound-based research and performance project that considered the complex interrelation of land use history, power infrastructures, and daily life through a series of actions, events, and collaborations. 

Starting from the Coast Mountain Bus Company Substation adjacent to Western Front, lilithlithlithlithlithlith involved site-visits, speculative documentation, broadcasts, movement studies, collective listening experiences, and a performance activating a collection of wearables for electromagnetic sensing. The title of Ferrari’s project was drawn from Maxine Gadd’s poem “Loon” (1986).
