Join writers Fay Ferency, Jess Rizkallah, and Letta Neely as they read aloud their nature and tree-centered poetry and guide participants in a brief poetry writing workshop. Participants will then have the opportunity to head outdoors, craft their own tree-inspired poetry, and share their creations with the rest of the group, all alongside the assistance of the writers. Registration requested, but walk-ups are welcome.
This event will take place near the Singing Trees that sing in concert weekly, Sundays from 12:00pm-2:00pm. You’re invited to listen as the biorhythms of several Sugar Maples – and a few Sassafras backup singers – are translated in to music. This audio installation at The Rocks at Harbor Way, created in partnership with PlantWave, transforms ordinary trees into master musicians. Using carefully placed electrodes, PlantWave measures the electrical variations of leaves and translates that data into sound through four distinct listening pockets situated around the park.
This event is brought to you in partnership with Boston Seaport by WS Development. For more information visit www.bostonseaport.xyz and follow along @seaportbos on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
