Acoustic Ecology, site specific works.

These are reworked documented projects that function as archival prints with QR Codes embedded in that extend the work beyond the 2d surface.  Sound and the sites were critical aspects of all three of these projects.  The site-specific acoustic works address the challenges of a trans-global consumer-based economy that ultimately stresses the oceans and seas, that exhausts resources without considering how to sustain our current level of “progress,” and how to curtail pollution left behind.

Ohr am Wattenmeer / Ear to the Sea was commissioned through the University of Oldenburg, Germany, a collaboration with scientists to listen/surveil from a remote scientific monitoring the rare and delicate environment of the Wattenmeer mudflats.  We embedded a hydrophone and interactive web camera on the Mess Station just off the island of Speikeroog one of several barrier islands off the coast of North Germany.


Each print is embedded with a QR Code that allows a smart phone user to access documentation for each project.





The above movie is documentation from the remote audio and the dynamic web camera that allowed users with a computer and access to the Internet to surveil the location 24/7 days a week.

Sea Quiver sonified the North Sea high winds off the coast of Germany, commissioned by an arts and ecology collective from Oldenburg, Germany, to raise attention to the Wattemmeer mudflats.

TAP: OCEAN is a work in progress that immerses the audience in the complex underwater sounds just off the cast of the Netherlands at the south of the mouth of the Rotterdam harbor channel, Netherlands. The sound track documents the submersed and noisy interruptions to the natural underwater environment.
