A sound installation with four identical lecterns which broadcasted sounds of animals, earthquakes, plants and fire ecologists when viewers approached. The position and control of the viewer as the authoritative speaker at a lectern was challenged, playing with and destabilising the classical hierarchy of nature.
Installation at The Moores Building Contemporary Art Gallery, 2006 as part of fieldwork/fieldwalking.
