About: EddieJoe Cherbony

When I'm not working for public affairs at the J. Paul Getty Museum, I'm pretending to be a famous writer. If dreaming big were the same as making it big, I'd already have a Nobel Prize. If senior staff assistants were paid Kanye money, I'd be a millionaire. If being a genius at Excel was the same as being an astronaut, I'd live on the Moon. Instead, I live across the street from the Getty Center and walk to work. Imagine living in L.A. and never sitting in traffic. Not even Kanye can do that.

      What can you hear at the museum?

      Artist Elana Mann creates participatory sonic experiences and invites you to listen in. More on the Iris.

      • How do sounds change depending on your body position, your direction, your eyes open or closed, or the position of the histophone? 
      • Can you imagine sounds coming from the art, architecture, and gardens?
      • If a sculpture could speak, what would it say? 
      • What are sounds you can make with your own body? 
      • Can you hear the tectonic plates shifting underneath your feet? 
      • How are natural and man-made sounds mixing and blending in this environment? 

      A list of the sounds that have reverberated through my body, 2013, Elana Mann. Cut photographs on paper.
