Teri Rueb's interactive sound walks, sculptures and site-specific installations explore landscape, architecture and spatial aspects of sound. She completed her doctorate at Harvard University Graduate School of Design in 2011. She is currently an Artist Resident at the Harvard MetaLab where she is developing a new work commissioned by the Arnold Arboretum. In 2012 she was Artist Resident at the Santa Fe Art Institute where she created a new site-specific work No Places With Names: A Critical Acoustic Archaeology in collaboration with Larry Phan and Carmelita Topaha (Navajo). Selected past works include Elsewhere : Anderswo (Oldenburg and Neuenkirchen, Germany), Core Sample (Spectacle Island, Boston Harbor and the Boston Institute of Contemporary Art), itinerant (Boston Commons and Public Garden), and Drift (Cuxhaven, Germany).
Trace, set along a network of hiking trails in the Canadian Rockies, was her first GPS-based sound walk created as a new media co-production with the Banff Centre for the Arts in 1999. Trace was ported to a new platform (iPhone app) during a residency at the Banff Centre in August 2012. Check out the Banff Centre podcast here.
