Our work has always been a search for planetary connection. Quarantine shifted the dynamics of the search. Our project with AILAB, the Wandering Mind, is a sound experience that guides the dreams of a sleeping audience, its source material drawn from planetary-scale sensing and organized by an AI system. From home confinement, we mined the internet for field recordings, tuned radios, and climbed to our Brooklyn rooftop to point antennas at passing satellites. Our isolation crystalized for us how much deeper our search can run, how vivid and connective dreams can be.
