Additional Information


While physical isolation is necessary, connection is more important than ever. The Dallas Museum of Art invites you to submit your sounds and build a record of this global moment.

Now in this digital artwork by designer Yuri Suzuki (creator of the speechless: different by design exhibit also available for virtual view), you can explore crowdsourced sounds from around the world that illustrate your experiences during the pandemic.

Sound of the Earth: The Pandemic Chapter continues the mission of speechless to pioneer museum experiences that expand visitors' understanding of the sensory spectrum.

Visit the link to submit your own sound recording—from cooking dinner at home, to the ambulance siren passing by, to online connections with loved ones. The sounds will be mapped onto a virtual rendering of the globe based on where they were captured, creating a dynamic audio experience of people's lives around the world.
