Significant Birds in San Diego

My installation Significant Birds is now touring with the exhibition ILLUSION originally created for the Science Gallery in Dublin. The installation consists of 12 bird cages with small speakers which emit fluctuating sine waves that sound like bird song. Collectively however they add up to discernible human speech, a text taken from Helmholtz’ On the Sensation of Tone. You can find more details of the piece here. the exhibition also features Madi Boyd’s The Point of Perception for which I made the sound.
The ILLUSION exhibition is currently at the Reuben Fleet Science Center in San Diego and runs until the 15th of January. The tour will continue to North Carolina in 2015 – watch this space for further dates.
