CARTASONIC combines field recording, projection, and montage to convey the layered architectural history of Civita di Bagnoregio, a remote Italian hill town. Through "built" images and field recordings, this work maps the evolution of a town and its steadfast presence in a shifting landscape.

In 2010, Seattle-based artists Perri Lynch and the collaborative team of Lara Swimmer and Robert Zimmer were awarded fellowships by the Northwest Institute for Architecture and Urban Studies in Italy. Perri's fellowship was devoted to field recording, while Lara and Robert documented the built environment and periphery landscapes. In fusing these disparate perspectives, one is immersed in a mysterious, ancient, and ultimately unknowable place.

Perri Lynch is an artist working with combined techniques in sound, light, sculpture and image. Her studio practice and public artworks explore the relationship between human perception and sense of place.

Lara Swimmer is a photographer of architecture, whose work examines where built environment and land intersect. She is recognized for her documentation of the building process, and has been published locally, nationally and internationally.

Robert Zimmer is an architect focused on rational design processes for a vast array of project genres, scales and settings. His work spans the design of public buildings to private residences, and includes the creation of furniture, art and gallery installations.
