Join the artist Paige Emery for the reception for Methods for Descrying, Intimate Eyes that Listen, a site-specific installation created for Fulcrum Festival at the Mt.Wilson Observatory.

Methods for Descrying, Intimate Eyes that Listen considers the space for intimate otherness in data interpretation. Musing between astronomical spectroscopy and intuitive scrying, the installation brings attention to the way humans use their senses as a conduit for understanding information. Tuning into the environment for a more-than-human deep listening practice is a crucial aid for research methodologies that explore cosmologies.

An extension of the exhibition FEELERS, produced by SUPERCOLLIDER on the occasion of the 2022 Fulcrum Festival, this installation is located at the lookout point outside the 100-inch Hooker Telescope at Mt. Wilson Observatory.


The observatory is located at the top of Mount Wilson at an altitude of 5,715 feet. It is only accessible via the Angeles Crest Highway (CA HWY 2) from the 210 Freeway at La Cañada Flintridge.

Please drive carefully as the winding mountain road is often narrow and steep with frequent hairpin turns.

Visit the Mount Wilson Observatory website for driving directions and current weather conditions. Weather conditions in the mountains can vary greatly, change suddenly, and may occasionally result in unscheduled road closures.
