Coti hydrophone recording for Auriculars

(click photos to enlarge)



'Pollen' is a site-specific installation by Coti and long time collaborator Dimitris Charitos which captures data from the sound pollution of the environment surrounding the Athens Museum of Contemporary Art, as well as light and temperature, and transforms it into an auditory ecosystem that functions adversely towards sound pollution conditions, in an attempt to counterbalance it at a symbolic level. The visual form of the installation is a network of beehives which contain the input devices that capture the environmental information (sensors, microphones, etc.), the information-processing part of the system as well as the devices, which output the sound composition of the installation (amplifiers and speakers).
