research overview

  • Teri Rueb is an artist whose work combines sound and site using mobile media. Over the past thirty years, she has created sound installations in which sounds play back in response to one's movement in the landscape as sensed by GPS. These works have been made for landscapes across the United States, Germany, France and Canada. Her practice is site-specific and research-based, with each piece involving extended periods of development, often in collaboration with local residents. Most recently she completed a commission with the Fiske Planetarium at CU. She is currently engaged in a commission from the Ucross Foundation and collaborations with electrical engineer, David Anderson, exploring the aesthetic possibilities of experimental loudspeaker design and acoustic holography.
