Collaborators’ Q&A: Stephen Scott Whitaker: A lot of my recent work is sound-centered, inspired by snatches of hums or whistled tunes heard as a child, a grandfather’s mumblings, or a choral abstraction of syllables. Artist Sara Tabbert: I know the goal of Broadsided for the artist is not to be directly illustrative, but in this case I couldn’t shake the image of the rabbit’s start, that realization on the part of the game that something is happening.
