Storefront Lab, San Francisco, California | April 2016
Soundscapes exhibited during "Sound+Consciousness", an installation by Joti Dee and Aver Collective.
Global nomad and designer Mari Sierra guided a sound awareness meditation and invited the public to reflect what is the interplay of sound in our everyday awareness and how does the rhythm of a city impact our essence?
Within the large-scale Soundscaped Cocoon made of wire and shoji paper, Mari shared her practice of sound journaling as a way to engage deeper with the essence of a city and the self. She samples different city soundscapes, a collection of instances that momentarily produced a sense of awe and 'heightened attention’ while traveling. We transform time, space and silence into the colorful memorabilia of urban life in the global era.
Sonoric fragments of sublime moments.
Guided visualizations for inward stillness.

It is time to return to our purest essence, our purest truth and singing is one easy way to feel your way there.

You are forever pure, you are forever true
& the dream of this world can never touch you
So give up your attachment & give up your confusion
& fly to that space that's beyond all illusion.
This are the voices of three dear friends that came together to explore the topic of love. What is the future of multicultural relationships? what is intimacy for a global nomad? how do we relate today to the concept of sharing a life partnership?

We've captured Venice’s unique and timeless culture through its sounds. Fleeting glimpses of unexpected corners of the new ‘old world’. This is how Venice streets sound to us; the canals, the art galleries, the cafes, the plazas.

This is the story of Cafe Lavena, the most renowned coffee boutique in Plaza di san Marco, open since 1750 and preferred spot of many historically famous composers and artists.
