Ingrid Lahti - Sonogram

installation (2007)

Aluminum tags cut from recycled cans are pinned to a painted wall in a pattern drawn from sonogram data of American robin song. The tags oscillate with ambient air currents, further evoking the dynamics of birdsong.

The original data forming the basis of this work appears in The Singing Life of Birds: The Art and Science of Listening to Birdsong (2005, Houghton Mifflin), and was used with the permission of author Donald Kroodsma.
