“Call ⇔ Response” [2007]

“Call ⇔ Response”


Software modeling the syrinx, a bony organ birds use to produce vocalizations, continuously generates various simulated bird calls. When a response is heard from a natural bird, the software initiates a self-teaching process, subtly changing and refining its calls. As this process is repeated and birds and computer influence each other, this installation attempts to create the opportunity for a new kind of communications that goes beyond the human word.
