Visit Wave Farm During Upstate Art Weekend

Aug 28, 2021 - Aug 29, 2021

Wave Farm will welcome drop-in visitors from noon to 6 p.m. on Saturday August 28 and Sunday August 29, 2021 in conjunction with UPSTATE ART WEEKEND.

Founded in 2020 by Helen Toomer of STONELEAF RETREAT to celebrate the cultural vibrancy of Upstate New York, UPSTATE ART WEEKEND connects people and places, building a community that not only visits for the weekend, but explores the Hudson Valley throughout the year. Its second expanded edition, takes place from August 27-29, 2021, and incorporates sixty-one participants in the Hudson Valley. This three-day self-directed, accessible event connects tourists and locals alike, with art and the outdoors, celebrating the cultural vibrancy of Upstate New York. 

#58 in the map above, Wave Farm's Acra campus on 29-acres featuring 10 site-specific Property Installations will be open on Saturday August 28 and Sunday August 29 from noon - 6 p.m. for guided tours. 

On Saturday, August 28 from 1 - 6 p.m. Jen Kutler will present Sonified Physiological Indicators of Empathy, a durational performance and broadcast. Kutler will perform sound works created from physiological data collected and analyzed for markers of empathetic response to curated sounds. Wave Farm visitors are invited to be participants. A subject is outfitted with sensors reading electrodermal activity, breath, and heart rate. The subject is then exposed to clips of site-specific audio in ten second intervals separated by ten seconds of silence. As the data is collected, it is given synthetic voices and processing. The timbres and textures draw from Wave Farm Radio streams to create immersive soundscapes.
