Presented by Art League Houston at Art League Houston

Artist Lina Dib’s, Sounds of Tomorrow – The Oracle Tree, is a beautiful and majestic pine tree located in a prominent spot within phase one of Houston’s Exploration Green Conservancy. Currently on view, around the tree are benches that offer park goers somewhere to sit and enjoy the brilliant surroundings of the island in the center of the lake. Though Exploration Green Conservancy is relatively new, it is already home to hundreds of birds including ducks, egrets and more.

As viewers stop to enjoy this stunning vantage point, they may notice that this pine tree is no ordinary tree. Two small speakers mounted in the tree play sounds relating to tomorrow’s weather. The soundtracks, recorded by Dib, feature various textures and open-air recordings from the park, as well as collected sounds of insects, birds and other species. Park visitors can sit on Dib’s benches and listen to Sounds of Tomorrow – The Oracle Tree to hear tomorrow’s forecast and learn about current inhabitants of the conservancy through her installation.

Dib’s installation highlights the multi-faceted possibilities of public art and is revolutionary in its multi-sensory capacity, engaging audiences and inviting them to experience the sights and sounds of the Exploration Green Conservancy in a new and exciting way.
