Contact Regarding Availability

This mixed media installation by sound artist Margaret Noble charts a psychogeographical path through the City Heights neighborhood of southern Calfornia, where the artist grew up. Combining visual traces of the neighborhood’s early Victorian years and motifs drawn from 1980s urban pop culture, Margaret Noble: 44th and Landis takes the form of an ephemeral sculptural environment comprising hundreds of cut paper forms. The installation also incorporates an experiential soundscape spread over fourteen handmade paper speakers, and is also the set for a series of sound-based performances by Noble.

Mixing imagery appropriated from video games, Victorian paper dolls, and 1980s urban pop culture, the work evokes the external and internal worlds of a child navigating the streets of a city pressured by waves of disinvestment and gentrification. Integrating memory and fantasy, and public and private histories, Margaret Noble: 44th and Landis offers insights into a complex American neighborhood’s past and present.
