Barnard College, Sociology and Ethnomusicology


Movement Lab

Nami Weatherby is a senior at Barnard studying Sociology and Ethnomusicology. Her work considers relationships between the fluid circulation of musics, social imagination, and survival in contexts of asymmetrical power. She is interested in exploring the potential of aurality to displace the distortive visual frame and articulate alternative, multiplicitous narratives about self and place. Nami is currently working on an installation illuminating the under-considered intimacies between peoples touched by a global network of nuclear violence. During her residency, Nami will explore means of bringing together aurality, visuality, and movement in ways that—like radiation itself—are boundless and diffuse, making audible relationalities that exist beyond the material.
