This piece is an audiovisual collage depicting my experience living in a remote village in the Philippines. It is a work-in-progress.
Miranda Arana lived in the small village of Obuag, in Ifugao Province, Philippines, from 1983-1984. She spent a total of six years in the Philippines, followed by two years in Vietnam. Sh has an MA in Ethnomusicology from Wesleyan University in Connecticut, and now teaches World Music at the University of Oklahoma.
The photos were taken by her and her former husband, Rick Krenzer, during his stint with the Peace Corps. She assembled the audio using field recordings made by Yale anthropologist Harold C. Conklin, in Bayninan, Ifugao.
