Deadline: See before show closes April 22.
Walk into the Des Moines Art Center, free and open today from 10 AM - 4 PM. Head into the Meier wing (the one with white Luston-like porcelain tiles). Go into the basement. Look for the sound installation near the paper echo sculptures and emergency exit.
Go inside alone. Have a friend stand guard at the curtain so that you aren’t interrupted. Be nervous about it. Let the darkness and disembodied sounds consume you. Get tense in your shoulders. Explore how deep you can go in the dark space. Go slowly and listen. Stare forward in the dark, attempt to let your eyes adjust. Read the description AFTER you’ve been inside. And then go see the video Rooom Rooom right next door.
