JuneJuly is Kyle Hovenkotter and Jake Matatyaou, a design studio based in Brooklyn, NY and Los Angeles, CA. JuneJuly stages experiences (spaces, installations, things, ideas) that go beyond what’s seen, to produce effects that must be heard, felt, tasted, and lived.

Shared Sounds

Shared Sounds

Published in the online journal Offramp, Shared Sounds visualizes field recordings of commutes on various modes of transit as color and light, producing four abstract films that call into question common preconceptions (and misconceptions) about crowds and the public. The project is part of our ongoing series of Listening projects which aim to correct/redress the privileging of vision over other modes/aspects of embodied sensation by staging experiences beyond what’s seen, to produce effects that must be heard, felt, tasted, and lived. May 2018.
