Sound installation: Four stainless steel sculptures, speakers, piano wire, solar panels, oscillators, amplifiers
Installed at Canyon de Chelly National Monument / Visitors Center, Chinle, AZ in 2012, Singing Toward The Wind Now / Singing Toward The Sun Now is an arrangement of four metal sculptures that function as musical instruments played by the natural elements. Electrical utility towers span that Navajo Nation; here they are incorporated with Navajo geometries that appear in weaving and painting designs. Two of the towers function as harps, their strings activated by the blowing wind and sand, producing a quiet singing drone. The other two are solar-powered oscillators, producing a faint and subtle electronic beating sound. Representing the Talking Gods, this council of holy people speaks to visitors of the canyon.
