CHIRP & DRIFT (Light Up Lancaster)

November 2 - November 3

Free

CHIRP&DRIFT

By: Kathy Hinde
Creative technologist:  Matthew Olden
Poet : Sarah Hymas

At: The Storey Gardens

Lancaster Arts, Arts at Lancaster University, Arts Council England

 

Chirp&Drift is a flock of small illuminated instruments temporarily making a home by nesting in a majestic beech tree in the Storey Gallery garden. The flock chatter in morse code messages, some of which will be de-coded, and others that will dissolve into nighttime whispers. Chirp&Drift artworks extend into the Gallery including bird imitations and interactive pieces.

Chirp&Drift aims to highlight processes where errors and miscommunications occur, as a metaphor for broken ecologies such as interruptions to habitats, narrowing sonic bandwidths for bird-calls to be heard clearly, elongated migration routes and the implications all these factors have on bird-life.
