Today I Saw

Inspired by Gertrude Stein’s poem “What Do I See,” this installation combined sound, text, video, and social practice to reimagine the town of Milton, Pennsylvania, through the lenses of its residents and in relation to a global currency of sounds and sights. Today I Saw created an archive of local sights juxtaposed with "foreign" sources. Sound recordings of town residents describing sights were dispersed across Milton and assembled into a poem in the gallery. People were invited to deposit their own site-specific sights in the bank, contributing to the archive.
