Listening Forest
Rafael Lozano-Hemmer

Back for its third and final season, Listening Forest combines light, sound, and technical marvels to create an immersive world waiting for its final piece: you. The forest’s eight interactive installations, each designed by artist Rafael Lozano-Hemmer, invite us to play with tools built for surveillance and transform them into instruments of connection.

From bridges of light carrying a stranger’s heartbeat to a multisensory wave of offered voices, in the Listening Forest you’ll have the chance to use your hands, your voice, and even the afterimage of your own body heat to create fantastical experiences in the dark. And unlike a passive light show or display, you’ll be able to direct the forest’s response at every turn on this family-friendly walk in the woods.

Set to a custom soundtrack composed by electronic musician Scanner (Robin Rimbaud) and open during the Ozarks’ best season, this really is an outdoor experience unlike any in Northwest Arkansas.
