Explore Miami Art Week in Wynwood with unreserved, a Fordistas experiment
unreserved is a location-based audio art experiment. It presents a location-sensitive composition of original music layered with recorded voices and sounds, creating a sonic art collage.
The perennial growth of Miami Art Week has in many ways created a culture of inaccessibility for both artists and spectators. Within a restricted visual landscape artists strive to showcase their work in increasingly curated spaces, either in galleries or on Wynwood wall space, while the public is limited to the role of spectator.
With unreserved, the public and artists alike are invited to surpass these limitations by downloading the free app and contributing to an ever-evolving sound collage of voices, street sounds and musical elements. Through the contribution of his or her own voice, each individual will have the chance to participate in the creation of a sonic work of art that will form a collective representation.
Featuring the recordings of local artists, musicians, writers and innovative thinkers, unreserved allows us all to step into their collective experiences while contributing our own. We invite you to collaborate with your unique perspective. Everyone is a creator.
unreserved, a Fordistas experiment is a collaboration between Fordistas and sound artist Halsey Burgund of the MIT Open Documentary Lab. Burgund is a fellow at the MIT Open Documentary Lab and creator of Roundware, an experimental, GPS-enabled, open-source, mobile audio platform that is the backbone for unreserved.
