This participatory earthwork installation provides a shared auditory and social experience. Shaping the earth into an intimate social space, participants engage directly with the earth, the grass and each other. This contact, within the circular earthen berm, generates an audio response to be shared by those nestled into the lush banks of the Magnolia. The nature of the Magnolia soundtrack will be a collaborative effort incorporating artists of the Art in Odd Places festival and the local environment.
