Interactive sound artist Chris Kallmyer (AIR ’12) collaborates with oystermen to create an immersive installation that explores the sounds, sights, and tastes of oyster production in West Marin. Partake in a circuit of edible experiences including a sonic investigation into the process of oyster cultivation, synchronized group shucking, and considered consumption of our favored bivalve. Consider the Oyster is a document of place, culture, and a window into oyster farming in West Marin. Culminating with a meal of oyster stew in the Mess Hall, participants should come with hungry minds and bellies and can expect to be wholly satiated.
