Bird Song Diamond 2012 - Present (Personal Project)

Bird Song Diamond is a five-year NSF funded research project is led by evolutionary biologist Charles Taylor and I am participating together with physicist Takashi Ikegami from Tokyo University. This project has helped me expand my acoustic senses in our daily environment and raised my appreciation of the diversity of patterns of communication in relation to bird species – beyond territorial / mating aspects. Two works emerged out of this collaboration – a mobile installation Bird Song Mimic that challenges the audience to imitate the bird songs and a large fully immersive virtual reality work realized at the Large Space at the University of Tsukuba, Japan under the sponsorship of engineer Hiroo Iwata.
