    of time or geography through sound it embodies the notion of the sonic image the transmission of a personal message through word and song Naturally the postcard also automatically connotes travel It implies the touristic ritual of the brief message and bright colored image sent as a testimony of the places visited The works in the exhibition reflect the experience of travel in an age of interconnectivity when the stories of one place often collapse into the histories of another The touristic experience is reflected as no longer being completely innocent or unburdened As a highly evocative medium sound lends an emotional layer to the experience of a place or a place in time As music it can have an enchanting mesmerizing effect or as found footage it can rupture a sense of the exotic or the sublime The element of notation on place as a text or musical score is inherent to all the works presented in which personal narrative or individual approaches to sound serve to heighten the experience of a distant site as forms of improvisation critique or resonating memory In Song Ming Ang s You and I 2009 the artist asks members of the public to write him letters telling him a few personal things about themselves memories compulsions experiences secrets ambitions etc Based on the contents of the letter he makes a personalized mixtape in the form of a CDR and mails it to the sender as a response These letters and the CDs are then exhibited with the permission of the participants Ang s video Be True to Your School 2010 originated from his residency in an old school building in Japan The artist invited former students of the elementary school to sing their school song in front of a camera They were first recorded on video individually many of them pausing and struggling to remember the lyrics Subsequently the participants were invited to sing the song as a group Ang filmed this chorus which he accompanied on a glockenspiel Kajsa Dahlberg s installation We notice no disturbances all are happy and friendly Postcards from Jerusalem 22 4 1911 24 1 1999 consists of some 600 postcards sent over a ninety year period from Jerusalem to Sweden The artist came across these cards while researching a group of Swedish Christian settlers in Palestine who began producing postcards for economic survival Even with their brief messages the postcard archive chronicles the changing times and historical conflicts that have marked Jerusalem over the decades Jeremiah Day s work No Words for You Springfield is a cross Atlantic exploration taking the form of 16 photographs and a performance documentation Attempting to trace the mass migration of Irish from the Blasket Islands to the US town of Springfield Massachusettes Day found that no discernable culture or tradition from Ireland has been preserved in the new world Instead he encountered the decay endemic to American post industrial cities Documentations of Springfield s urban ruin Day s photographs are inscribed

    related to the origins and activities of the Order as well as recent Mildred s Lane Fellows artists Rory Parks and Helen Miller The Order of the Third Bird There remains some confusion about the history and practices of the body known as The Order of the Third Bird but evidence points to its having been for some time a network of cell like groups that engage in ritualized forms of sustained attention to works of art The canons of secrecy around these activities their structure and purposes have traditionally been sufficiently restrictive as to leave some doubt as to whether any individual profession knowledge of the Order could in fact be genuinely associated therewith Helen Miller Artist in Residence Helen Miller explores human movement in the context of visual art and literature most recently pairing formalized sequences from dance and exercise with Beckett s Play and Sappho s Fragment 16 In support of Bird practice this week she will lead a series of site specific movement lessons drawing on the Feldenkrais Method of somatic education Mildred s Lane MILDRED S LANE is a rustic 96 acre site deep in the woods of rural northeastern Pennsylvania in the upper Delaware River Valley which borders New York state It is an ongoing collaboration between J Morgan Puett Mark Dion their son Grey Rabbit Puett and their friends and colleagues It is a home and an experiment in living Mildred s Lane attempts to coevolve a rigorous pedagogical strategy where a working living researching environment has been developed to foster engagement with every aspect of life The entire site has become a living museum or rather a new contemporary art complex ity It is now important to sidestep the debates around what is art or design architecture and fashion in order to
