Listening as (a) movement is a new public artwork by artist Elana Mann involving interactive sculpture and community based performance art events.The project investigates sound and the voice as physical entities that can move us emotionally, form deep interpersonal connections, and be agents of social change. The project was commissioned by Side Street Projects (SSP) and is located at SSP's mobile headquarters in NW Pasadena, where Mann has built three outdoor acoustic sculptures, as well as organized community events and artist performances/workshops that will take place during the course of the exhibit.
