Fereshteh_OoS-week10-290x222In the 1920s and 30s, analogue listening devices were developed for military reconnaissance. Inspired by these hearing aids, Fereshteh Toosi will guide participants in deep listening while wearing parabolic reflectors created from household items like umbrellas and bowls. Those who join the walk will have the opportunity to enhance their sense of hearing by trying on the devices.

Fereshteh Toosi is a multidisciplinary artist who collects and recombines sounds, words, images, and actions. Her participatory social practice ranges from community–driven oral history projects to guerilla interventions in public places. Currently a research fellow at Archeworks, she is designing a tactile graphics book that connects vegetable gardening to soul food cooking traditions. You may find samples of her work  atwww.fereshteh.net.
