Pond awarded grant for new art installation


Greg Pond, associate professor of art at Sewanee, has been awarded a grant from Chattanooga organization MakeWork. The nearly $9,000 grant will fund the creation of a large-scale artwork in Chattanooga. Pond’s was one of just 15 grant proposals funded from 120 requests.

The work, a sound installation responsive to the ecology of architecture, will amplify the acoustic properties of a structure, drawing to the fore the aesthetic relationships of the experience of a space to prompt a reconsideration of it. Pond’s installation will collect sound and other information from the physical structure of a building, analyze it, and build harmonics or other compositional structures in response. The installation will be open to the public and will engage the community through discussions about the work, location, and its relation to the city's history and future.

Pond teaches courses in sculpture, intermedia, and film/video production at Sewanee. MakeWork’s goal is to stimulate the Chattanooga area creative economy by offering support, resources, and showcase opportunities to artists. It also serves to deepen community understanding and appreciation for individual artists.
