“Elemental Exclosure”, 2019. 4-channel audio, burnt timbers, solar-electrical assembly, speakers, and found objects.
A collaboration by Adriene Jenik and Dominic Miller
In August of 2018 Adriene Jenik invited Dominic Miller to collaborate on an outdoor artwork in Joshua Tree, CA. She would do readings from a specialized tarot deck she created and visitors would be greeted by a sonic sculpture marking her location. The “ECOtarot” is Adriene’s ongoing performance connecting people to their climate change future/pasts using her custom tarot deck and interpretations drawn from science. The sculptural component locating Adriene would be a solar-powered “exclosure” configured to amplify audio into the immediate landscape. Adriene compiled a chorus of women orators to propel its collective knowledge of broad ecological, economic, and social forces. The recordings include scientists, organizers, authors, and activists, all voicing their call to action in communities across the world.
