Dubai to Tunis: In Time, Across Land

Sound artists Fari Bradley and Chris Weaver traveled from the Middle East to the Maghreb and assembled this montage of suspended time in airport waiting rooms and boarding gates, watching the clock, the Bardo Museum, salt desert, green oasis, and reflective texts. Here are their notes from this episode's journey: From the Middle East to the Maghreb - suspended time in airport waiting rooms and boarding gates, acutely watching the clock before transitioning time zones...until we are traveling in time between city and the desert oasis. Spring 2015 traveling to an arts conference in the Bardo Museum, Tunis, where artifacts mark the millennia of human history which have journeyed through Carthage. Only months prior, the artifacts were marked with yet another layer of history and still the bear those marks three months on. Then transitioning through time from Tunisia Spring 2015 to Tunisia Spring 2010, just before the Jasmine Revolution. From the city we proceed into the salt desert up the hills to a green mountain oasis...unedited sketches merge under an unfolding narrative with selected text from Edward Said’s Reflections on Exile (1984).




Sound artists Fari Bradley and Chris Weaver take to the road to explore the manner in which one's sense of identity is sharpened by suspension of place during a voyage. Our sense of community in the world - whether as part of a neighborhood, a workplace, or an interest-based community - is built from familiar cues and interaction with sights, sounds, and other stimuli. On the road these cues are disconnected and one necessarily becomes a citizen of a wider world, the planet itself. Captured within these audio journeys are varying locales and places of connection and transition: airport lounges, walkways between buildings, and journeys between cities where a sense of place is fractured and re-arranged. Bradley and Weaver's audio collages feature narratives from a collection of cassette audio diaries, soundscapes, overheard music and snippets of conversation, all in service to the larger universal context that quietly envelops us all. Artists Fari Bradley and Chris Weaver collaborate across a variety of performance, sculpture, and media practices. They work with experimental music, radio, performance, and sculpture, and, in a world dominated by visual culture, investigate sound as a means to establish and question new sets of social relations between subjects and space.
