Echolocation Workshop with Leith Miller and David Burr

Bat echolocation is a sonic system that exists almost entirely outside of the human perceptual range. This collaboration between Leith Miller and David Burr will offer the chance to navigate the Henry’s education studio through use of a few of the many cognitive distortions involved in a bat's construction of a nocturnal landscape. In this workshop we will begin to unpack the humanly subliminal geography of a bat's ever changing world.

Leith Miller is a doctoral researcher with the University of Washington Department of Biology, who, for the past 5 years, has been working with the Santana Lab studying how nose shape and other physical traits effect the lives of Neotropical Bats.

David c. Burr is an artist from Massachusetts studying for his MFA in the Painting and Drawing department of University of Washington.  He has begun to use film and sculpture to offer programmatic and experimental events to his audiences. Through these explorative modes of creation and collaboration David has continued to develop his interest in the effect of perceptual cognitive dysfunction on realizing the self in a growingly decentralized social ecosystem.

This program is a result of the Henry’s invitation to artists exhibiting in the 2018 University of Washington MFA + MDes Thesis Exhibition to utilize public programming as a generative tool for expanding upon themes and concepts found within their work.
