Seeking entries for The Golden Record, an exhibition inspired by the images and sounds of “The Sounds of Earth,” the recording that is now traveling on the Voyager spacecraft far beyond our galaxy, bearing hundreds of sounds, including the Brandenburg Concerto, whales, footsteps, greetings in 55 languages, thunder, crickets, brainwaves, a heartbeat, and “Dark Was the Night, Cold Was the Ground” by Blind Willie Johnson. Submit out-of-this-world works in all media, including sound, video, performance, technology, and science that reflect on the beautiful and daft hopefulness of this compilation going forth for 40,000 years to be sort of near the closest star. Exhibition dates: August 18-October 7, 2018. A proposal with links to up to three images, videos, or sound files may be submitted for review at Entry fee $10.00.
