Experience the High Line gardens in a way you never have before. Brooklyn-based poet Tommy Pico, originally from the Viejas Indian reservation of the Kumeyaay nation, walks you through the park, sharing whispered stories, memories, and secrets of what the gardens' microclimates evoke for him. Heartache and song, sparklers on July 4th, and mom's wisdom all intertwine in a tale of love and reconciliation, and people and nature.
FEED is a narrative soundscape that can be experienced as you walk from the Donald Pels and Wendy Keys Gansevoort Woodlands to the Rail Yards, sitting at your favorite spot on the park, or even off the High Line.
FEED was created by Tommy Pico; Commissioned by Friends of the High LIne and produced in partnership with Poets House; Sound Design and Production by Alexandra DiPalma.
