Birds Singing other Birds Songs

This work has been produced using various digital and multimedia programmes and transferred into video. There is also the interactive Flash version. Here the user can choose the birds he/she want to see flying in the sky.

The conceptual basis for the work is an exploration into the idea of the translation process: from birds' sounds into language and back to birds' songs via the human voice with the knowledge of language. These birds are animated 'text birds' singing the sound of their own text while flying in the sky. The letters, which create their physical outlines, correspond to the transcribed sound made by each of the birds. The sound is produced by the human voice slightly manipulated in the computer. Nevertheless, the sound doesn't correspond to the visual representation of the real bird. The birds appear on screen in a random manner.
