Visiting Artist: Nathaniel Ober, Recent Sound Projects
May 16 – May 31

Nathan Ober
Nathaniel Ober, visiting artist at UNCW for the Spring 2019 semester, explores the relationships of human perception and natural phenomena through immersive multi-sensory installations. Ober’s use of natural material, combined with technology and sound creates an immersive, unique experience for the viewer. With this interactive work, Ober offers an inquiry into sounds of the natural world while also offering a platform for visitors to share their voices and listen to others.
