  Migration 2014  
 

 

 

 

 

An installation for 97 factory-second dictaphones. By subtly transforming their mechanics and audio electronics their simple motion, voltage and operative noise are combined into a visual and aural display reminiscent of the massed migrations of birds or insects.

Obliquely referencing the appropriation of the term 'Migration' as a data process the work reflects on the global movement of consumer electronics as they pass from production to pollution in the ever accelerating life cycles between generations of technology.
