In their collaborative audio installation, Nocturne, artists Bobby T. Luck and Emma Levesque-Schaefer and writers Prince Shakur and Twinkle Panda explore the bonds of queer community through interviews with friends and mentors, asking each interviewee to describe the moment when they first felt that they were part of something larger—a moment of communal belonging, in other words.

Nocturne takes the form of a four channel audio installation. Over a two-hour period, voices pivot back and forth between the channels articulating a loose dialogue punctuated by silence.
