Unfortunately no image but an interesting project:
Birdland is an immersive sound work. Set in a 3D game construction space, visuals are minimalised and sound is maximalised in order to experiment with sensations, perceptions and flows of listening. Within the space, the user glides freely around sculptural, architectural and topological formations. The project aims to develop new techniques for composing sound and new ideas about the significance of listening, through a reading of Deleuzian and Lacaning texts in conjunction with playful and intuitive exploration. An iteration of the work presented for the Time Transcendence Performance conference is an early prototype created for the Design Research Institute’s Virtual Reality Centre.
Project partners: Intervention through Art: RMIT Design Research Institute, Firelight Technologies.
We disturbed a spoonbill roosting on the thrombolites. Musk duck calls out his territory in the water nearby.
These were quite squishy to the touch and birds had been pooing on them.
Close up of one of the lithified stones. I think this has been turned over when they dug the drain. It shows a non stratified texture. The brown fibres are fresh material dried on it from the last time the lake level was high. These whitish rocks are higher up the shore.
Banks Island, Canada - Expanded Ranges. The Inuit now regularly see species common much further south that previously were never seen on the island, such as robins and barn swallows. Thunder and lightning, never before recorded in Inuit oral history, have also been reported.
