Where the Questions Live: An Exploration of Humans in Nature is a curiosity-driven, format-bending romp with artist Wes Sam-Bruce, that adventurously investigates the connections, metaphors, and experiences of human beings within the natural world. Best known for his immersive, story-saturated exhibitions, Sam-Bruce will be creating a site-specific, multi-sensory, installation at PEM that will act as an enveloping world within a world. This exhibition will also feature an original soundscape, scored by award-winning composer Ruth Mendelson.
The installation in The Dotty Brown Art & Nature Center will be the culmination of a year-long exploration (Sept '18-Sep '19) that will utilize a mobile studio, walking adventures, poetry, meditations, education programming, and artmaking as well as an online archive that chronicles the year and the project. The public is invited to take part, both through on-site programs at PEM and by participating in the project online, as well as exploring behind the scenes via the archive at wherethequestions.live.
