=====

Where the Questions Live: An Exploration of Humans in Nature is a curiosity-driven, format-bending romp with artist Wes Sam-Bruce, that adventurously investigates the connections, metaphors, and experiences of human beings within the natural world.

Best known for his immersive, story-saturated exhibitions, Sam-Bruce creates a site-specific, multi-sensory, installation at PEM that functions as an enveloping world within a world.

This exhibition also features an original soundscape, scored by award-winning composer Ruth Mendelson.

The installation in The Dotty Brown Art & Nature Center is the culmination of a year-long exploration (Sept '18-Sep '19) that utilized a mobile studio, walking adventures, poetry, meditations, education programming, and artmaking as well as an online archive that chronicled the year and the project.

The public is invited to take part, both through on-site programs at PEM and by participating in the project online.

You can also explore online content generated by the artist for while the exhibition is closed here.
