ABOUT THE PROJECT
Invisible-5 is a self-guided audio tour along the I-5, between Los Angeles and San Francisco. It uses the format of a museum audio tour to guide the listener along the highway landscape, mixing elements of critical tourism, sonic experiment, audio documentary, and investigative journalism.

Invisible-5 tells the stories of diverse community members who are tied to another through the geography of the I-5 corridor and through their shared struggle for environmental justice along the route of California's major North-South highway. The tour includes interviews, archival sound, recorded music, and field recordings to investigate the invisible toxic landscape of the I-5 corridor.


ABOUT THE COLLABORATION
Invisible-5 is a collaboration between three artists and two 501c3 organizations. The collaborators on Invisible-5 are lead artists Amy Balkin and Kim Stringfellow, audio lead Tim Halbur, and organizations Greenaction for Health & Environmental Justice, and Pond: art, activism, and ideas.
