BOUNDARYMIND is a long-distance collaborative project by Linda Jankowska and Katherine Young. The evening-length electroacoustic sound piece and aggregating multi-media installation explores and transgresses the geographical, cultural, psychological, and musical boundaries that impact how we share—and modulate—our past, present, and future selves through collection and interaction with our material world. Every-day objects with sentimental meaning and memory-evoking power have been shared—recorded and remixed, filmed and animated, collected and woven into a three-dimensional tapestry. When the piece is fully realized—performed and installed for in-person experience—these objects and sounds, weaving by Molly Roth Scranton and film by Kera MacKenzie, will be installed into an immersive space, and audience members will be invited to contribute their own objects-memories-sounds. Until then, we are releasing aspects of the work into the world through a storefront installation at Roman Susan in Chicago, online performances, and a Call-for-Home Recordings disseminated via radio stations.
