Being Led By The Stars . . . Two Walking Practices in Dialogue Teri Rueb and Bill Gilbert  Walking and sound have variously shaped the practices of Colorado and New Mexico-based artists Teri Rueb and Bill Gilbert.  This Cafe event will feature both artists who will present a brief overview of their broader practice, speaking specifically about two works: Wanderers (Teri Rueb, Jiffer Harriman and Roberto Azaretto, 2021) and Terrestrial/Celestial Navigations (Bill Gilbert, 2011-2022).  Wanderers seeks to sonify in real-time the movements of the planets and asteroid belts represented in the Colorado Scaled Solar System Model on the campus of the University of Colorado Boulder, while Terrestrial/Celestial Navigations charts a series of walks tracing patterns of stars from the night created by ancient cultures sky onto contemporary landscapes. 

Both artists have used GPS-based technologies widely in their practices to create works that weave walkers into the sound, light and rhythms of natural cycles from tides to planetary movements. The event will bring Teri and Bill into conversation with each other and with audience members and the walk · listen · create community.
