October 21 - 30, 2020
“This Fall, artist Pamela Martinez, recipient of the 2020 Luminaria Artist Foundation Grant in the Performing Arts category, debuts Teletextile: Artemisia, a series of immersive performances inspired by the healing power of nature, the open sky of Texas, and the iconic San Antonio River. The second installment of the Artemesia series, Touching at a Distance presents the interplay of nature and sound. Sound being a synonym for touch in a time when we may need touch for healing, but because of health concerns we have been keeping our distance from each other. As vibrations reach your ear they touch your most sensitive receptors being able to experience vibrations from great distances away. We ask that guests walk through the 3 block space and not stay at any location for longer for than a few mins to help maintain proper social distancing guidelines. We please ask that people also exit the exhibit space promptly after your experience.
Central to Artemisia: Touching at a Distance is Martinez’s sonic sculpture – an eight foot Aeolian wind harp sculpture. The striking image of the wind harp’s physical structure is always present for the viewer’s eye, but can only be heard from strong winds that often come before or after storms, reminding us that in the most chaotic of times there is beauty to be found. This piece will be on display in the lower plaza of San Pedro Creek Culture Park for the 10-day series until early December. Sound Sculpture fabricated by Wayland Roed.”
