It utilizes field recordings by blending songs and spoken word pieces with the soundscapes in which we listen to them – whether it be played along with Los Angeles traffic, the sound of a meal being prepared, or waves at the beach.

Ni Chana Ti-Juana exhibition

Ni Chana Ti-Juana

Graduate Public Practice presents an exhibition of field work by first-year students, Ni Chana Ti-Juana. Describing a condition or situation defined by a lack of resolution: not one or the other, neither here nor there, the term was a conceptual point of departure. Students took three trips to Camino Verde, a community in Tijuana, Baja California. The research projects have been facilitated by faculty member Bill Kelley Jr.
