A collaboration between Dianne Ballon and Maine Maritime Museum that investigates the significant role of sound in maritime environments. The exhibition will encourage visitors to think critically about the soundscapes they encounter along Maine’s coast and how they contribute to them.
The exhibition will feature topics such as navigational warning systems from buoys to foghorns – both past and present. It will investigate the idea of ”lost” and “found” maritime sounds and invite visitors to reflect on how sound affects our individual and collective memory. It will be an interdisciplinary exploration of art, science, technology, and history. Audio samples in the exhibition include examples of Dianne’s field work and recordings of objects from the museum’s collection.
