Siena Oristaglio is an artist and writer out of Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts. She frequently takes candy from strangers.
Siena wrote to me asking about whether I could put some of her art here, and I’m so glad that I can. I think it’s a fantastic idea she’s got, putting sounds near domestic running water. This is what she wrote me, and I think it describes her work better than I can. “I ended up on the “sonnet” page and the preface about moving water is directly related to a project I’m working on now – compiling audio submissions of people doing things near running water (humming in showers, bathing infants, discussing iranian politics over dishes, etc.).” So here are some tracks. Her website can be found after the cascade.
