SEIDScape 2015

August 5th, 2015


In September of 2015 I presented SEIDScape in Portland’s SE Industrial District. SEIDScape was a large scale outdoor audio installation covering a 10 by 7 block area. Custom audio players sporadically emitted wild animal sounds in to the area, highlighting the wild history of this soon to change area.

Installation Dates:

September 5th from noon to 4pm

September 12th from noon to 4pm

September 19th from noon to 4pm

September 26th from noon to 4pm

Artist Statement

I have loved the SE Industrial district since moving to Portland in 2001. The area has played hosts to renegade practice spaces, illegal live/work spaces, rooftop parties, and unofficial wheat paste galleries. As Portland continues transforming itself, this area is also changing, but before it becomes a steel and glass monument to safe urbanity, I want to highlight the wildness that still echoes in the underpasses.

The sound devices will be placed in the area below:
