A Communal Arts Project of Light, Sound and Photography

 

 

 

Project Summary

The Suburban Seas installation is a Highland, IN communal arts project of light, sound and photography documenting 5 year’s of Highland’s ever changing landscape. Suburban Seas will use an interactive method of instruction combining the arts and sciences to raise awareness of environmental concerns, heighten community involvement towards Highland’s natural surroundings and to open up discussions on how light, sound and visuals enhance our health and wellness. This communal arts installation strives to educate its viewers on a sensory level.

The Highland community and its surrounding communities can benefit greatly from exposure to a destressing and educational environment by allowing guests a space to decompress, meditate and commune with nature visually, audibly and emotionally.

Project Need and Benefit

When we think of stress, we almost automatically attribute it towards individual circumstances – i.e. work, family, health, monetary, etc.  However, recent studies have shown that environmental stressors can greatly impact communities by increasing crime rates, economic suffrages and psychological unease.  Evidence has proven that engagement with the arts enhances mood, emotions and other psychological states all while building a stronger foundation for social support.

The Highland community and its surrounding communities can benefit greatly from exposure to a destressing and educational environment by allowing visitors a space to decompress, meditate and commune with nature visually, audibly and emotionally.
