“homing”- an ability to return to a place after traveling a far distance/ to move or be aimed towards/ to focus attention on

HOMING is an audio installation and participatory performance score for Scioto Audubon Metro Park in Columbus, OH, that considers the role of attention, sensation, and movement in orienting towards land, our non-human companions, and ourselves. Through a set of five audio guides featuring reflective and creative movement prompts for different areas of the park, participants are invited to bring attention to plants, wildlife, and the connections between our bodies and the local landscape. The guides can be experienced sequentially for a 90-minute moving journey through the park or individually for a shorter experience. 

Each guide can be accessed via a QR code on signs distributed throughout the park. For ease of access, participants should plan to bring their own smartphones and headphones. Alternatively, 5 sets of headphones/mp3 players are available at the Audubon Center for free in exchange for a driver’s license while in use.  

Listen to each audio guide here:

1. The Audubon Center

2. The Scioto Greenway

3. The Water Tower

4. The Wetlands

5. The Recreation Fields

Participants will have the opportunity to travel through the park and respond to the audio guides as a group alongside a small ensemble of performers. The full event will take approximately 90 minutes and begin in front of the Grange Insurance Audubon Center (505 W Whittier St. Columbus OH, 43215) near the parking lot. *Rain date: in the event of inclement weather, this event will be held on Sunday, May 19 at 1pm.
