One Mile Loop

Public Doors and Windows

Flex It! My Body My Temple
Parthenon Museum
Nashville, TN


One Mile Loop was a series of public signs and musical performances that I created with Molly Sherman and Nolan Calisch which responded to the routine exercise habits of runners and walkers who regularly use the park’s walking trail. Six signs, placed at intervals along the trail, replicate historical markers, but instead of containing historical information, the markers share information about the current lives, exercise habits, and musical preferences of six Nashville citizens who regularly use the park. A musical performance was organized with six local bands playing songs selected by the runners and walkers, allowing the public to experience a continual live music experience as they make their way around the path.
