Janet Cardiff:
A Large Slow River
Grades 10 to 12

At the Galleries


An art experience unlike any other, Janet Cardiff's site-specific audio walk through Gairloch Gardens is sure to engage your students. A Large Slow River was recorded on site in the gardens, using omnidirectional microphones to create a binaural soundscape. A gem in the Galleries' collection, this is a landmark piece by one of Canada's most accomplished media artists and should not be missed! Come for the walk, followed a discussion led by one of our educators.
