Nightingale Bird Song
Nightingale Bird Song
A Representation Of A Bird
What better representation of a bird than its song? I screen captured the music visualization of a nightingale song at regular time intervals. The resultant shapes of the music visualization are then traced and lasercut onto clear acrylic. Each shape represents a single moment in the nightingale song. All the pieces are arranged together in their time sequence. The final assembled form is a physical translation of what is an aural experience of a nightingale. The moment of a nightingale in full song frozen in a crystalline form.
