‘Ghostwalk, A Creative Haunting of Sehome Hill’ is a locative media piece that celebrates the return of student voices to the WWU campus. Locative media uses location-based technology, such as GPS and Wi-Fi, as a canvas. This piece showcases student works of audio art that explore themes of haunting, place, and (im)permanence.

You can experience Ghostwalk by downloading the Gesso.fm app onto your phone and walking to the locations shown on the map. To our knowledge, this is the first piece of locative art in Bellingham, WA.

To create this piece, students in creative writing and audio engineering classes worked together to create a series of “ghosts” in the form of poems, short stories, songs, and radio plays that are tried to specific GPS locations. The piece will launch at noon on Thursday, October 27th, 2022.

Please be advised that this work is similar to an “open mic” event. Some of the student works within it explore adult themes.
