Art Scan Fair Meditation, 2012; pre-recorded 16:22 audio tour; ArtPadSF art fair, San Francisco.

This guided audio tour of the ArtPadSF art fair combined the warmly authoritative narrative of museum audio tours with the language and sonic cues of guided meditation recordings, and was available to fair attendees in the form of pre-recorded MP3 players and headphones. Unlike traditional audio tours, Art Scan Fair Meditation used the juxtaposition of different linguistic systems to bring awareness back to the human body moving through the space of the fair, and asked listeners to reconsider their presence within the machinery of art-world hierarchies.
