Teri Rueb and Ernst Karel are launching Fens, a sound installation for the Back Bay Fens, as part of the exhibition Listen Hear: The Art of Sound at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum (opens March 8, 2017).

She is also collaborating with Alan Price and students at Northern State University in South Dakota on a collaborative mapping project that addresses the land, water and people of the Dakotas. She recently collaborated with the Tuscarora Nation on a mobile app project that geo-locates oral histories of land, water and people to places of cultural significance along the Niagara River.

In 2015 she collaborated with botanist Peter Del Tredici to create Other Order
, a GPS-based sound walk set in the Bussey Brook Meadow of the Arnold Arboretum / Harvard University. The project is a sound walk that reveals the sometimes overlooked and misunderstood beauty of urban wilds. Available as a free downloadable app from the Google Play Store and the App Store and set in the transportation corridor of the Blackwell Footpath of the Bussey Brook Meadow (at the Forest Hills T Station), the project can be publicly accessed indefinitely. Please visit the project web site for further information.

Teri Rueb's interactive sound walks, sculptures and site-specific installations explore landscape, architecture and spatial aspects of sound. In 2013 she completed Grimpant in collaboration with Alan Price with a commission and residency at La Panacee in Montpellier, France.

In 2012 she was Artist Resident at the Santa Fe Art Institute where she created a GPS-based sound walk and site-specific sculptural installation No Places With Names in collaboration with Larry Phan and Carmelita Topaha (Dine). No Places With Names was recently acquired by the Institute of American Indian Arts and Museum of Contemporary Native Art in Santa Fe, NM.

Selected past works include Elsewhere : Anderswo (Oldenburg and Neuenkirchen, Germany), Core Sample (Spectacle Island, Boston Harbor and the Boston Institute of Contemporary Art), itinerant (Boston Commons and Public Garden), Drift (Cuxhaven, Germany), and Choreography of Everyday Movement (Baltimore, MD; Easton, MD; San Antonio, TX).

Trace, set along a network of hiking trails in the Canadian Rockies, was her first GPS-based sound walk created as a new media co-production with the Banff Centre for the Arts in 1999. Trace was ported to a new platform (iPhone app) during a residency at the Banff Centre in August 2012. Check out the Banff Centre podcast here. A newly designed map and guide to the project is available here.
