About Spring Tide:
“The theme of this exhibition is the migration of birds, a fascinating, complex, dynamic process. Through long springs, sound migrates as birds do but much faster. However compared to the strings of musical instruments it propagates extremely slowly. So slow that it is possible to track the sound travelling through space, visually and audibly. The work is powered by the wind that blows six metal plates which hit the springs in an extremely unpredictable way.”
video of Spring Tide, recorded 29-31 August.
Note: All sounds were recorded in the huts, which function as sound chambers, most of the time not (completely) in sync with the image.
