Inside the Watershed: Opening Day
Start Date: 8/3/2022 All Day
End Date: 8/3/2022

Event Description

Inside the Watershed is an outdoor sound installation created by artists Annea Lockwood and Liz Phillips.

Within a specially designed arbor located on the Schuylkill River Trail, hear live sound from an underwater microphone placed in the river at the site and discover a fascinating water world normally hidden from us.

Immerse yourself in the river’s sounds as you feel low-frequency waves through two benches in the arbor.

Every half hour, five minutes of recordings made underwater at the Black Rock Sanctuary near Phoenixville mix with live sound coming from the river.

Inside the Watershed is a companion piece to Lockwood and Phillips’ The River Feeds Back in the Academy of Natural Sciences' Dietrich Gallery and is the culminating experience of How to Get to the River.

Open during daylight hours, Inside the Watershed is free of charge and accessible to the public.

Arbor designed by David Gordon
Fabrication by Jesse Engaard
Produced by New Paradise Laboratories and Greenhouse Media
