    Sonic Photographs: Lincoln Park

Hi. My name is Betsey Biggs, and I'm a composer and visual artist. My work connects the dots between music, sound, visual art, place, storytelling, and technology, and I especially like working on projects that engage public creativity. This year, I'm an artist-in-residence at the Rhode Island School of Design's Digital+Media department and a fellow in the Harvard University Department of Music. I'm always interested in meeting new people. Drop a line on Facebook, Twitter, or of course email.
