Frequencies for Darwin (vermi conversation)
Audio Installation 2006
1000 red wigglers, microphone, amplifier, red light, black drape, chair
In this installation the participant is invited to talk and listen to worms via a sculptural instrument. The worm filled glass jar has been modified with an speaker that vibrates when the participant speaks through the microphone. This work is inspired in part by the experiments of Charles Darwin with worms and vibration as discussed in his seminal book “The Formation Of Vegetable Mould, Through The Actions of Worms”.
