Please join us for the last online session of Learning About Images by Listening to Music in this semester. We will join the artist, programmer, and former ASMR radio show host Claire Tolan for a guided tour of her new audio play CICADA GAMES, currently in development. The audio Play will be embedded in an augmented reality app as a “A whispering about history and time, isolation and conspiracies.” as the artist calls it.
