Pennsylvania Horticultural Society Commission
A site-specific sound installation experienced at 10th & Hamilton Street, Philadelphia. The work is in response to Sohn’s research into the history, places and people connected to the three-mile disused Reading Railway line. The artwork explores the cultural heritage and the rail site’s creative potential, and prompts visitors to consider our relationship with the industrial past and how we shape our public spaces.
