Swarm Soundscape

Swarm, a site-specific installation, speaks to the ideas of collectivism, shared knowledge, and reflection as it beckons all who pass by. Artists Halima Afi Cassells and Megan Heeres created this temporal work by reimagining obsolete media materials like CDs, 3.5” diskettes, microfiche film, and signage vinyl.


To honor the knowledge and memories of each person who lent energy to the project, we have created this soundscape with favorite songs, and interviews crowdsourced from the group as we made this work, speaking directly to how we all share with our community.
