From high in the branches of one of the landmark white pines near main camp: a northwest view over the forest, past a four mile stretch of Lake Superior, to the distant mainland.
Dial-an-Island is an interactive work by 2016 residents Jack Forinash, Kelly Gregory, and Mary Rothlisberger, currently on display at the DeVos Art Museum. Give the island a ring at (605) 468-5774.
Captured over a continuous 24 hours in September 2016, the realtime recording documents the sounds of island life including shoreline chats, a boat ride, sauna steams, lake jumps, sing-alongs to an old tape player, dinner prep, whispered dreams, and the always audible notes of the woods and water. The recording is synchronized with the day so calling at different times will uncover new moments.
