FINALIST: MARTHA WHITTINGTON, RAE LONG

CONTEMPLATION - RESOLUTION - UNITY

A series of surround sound sculptures intended for deactivated smokestacks in metro Atlanta. Smoke from smokestacks used to paint the sky, signaling abundance, but this prosperity was conspicuously not shared with people from different racial, economic, and cultural origins. “Contemplation - Resolution - Unity” is presented as three concepts, each embodied in a smokestack. Musical treatises are composed for each environment, inviting Atlantans to find meaning and clarity through the immersive sounds animated from within. <<
