Title: “Tide comes in, tide goes out” (2019)
Is a sound installation that translates the continuous up and down movement of the tides around the docks in Liverpool into sound. This is achieved through the use of an Arduino encoded with the data of the tide table in Liverpool.
The vibrations that the devise creates, relies on the pataphysical idea of a piano played by the ocean coming and going; an ocean capable to resonate into our enclosed spaces and enter both our daily and imaginary life. Indeed, each time a note is played it can create a poetic connection between the listener and the sea into an incessant communion of breathing life in and out.
This is a work that intends to remind the public of the interconnection and interdependence between the human and the non-human environments in an attempt to encourage sensitivity toward the causality upon which our life depends.
A special thanks goes to DoES Liverpool team for offering their space and time and especially to Liam Comerford and Zarino Zappia for their passion and support in encoding the Arduino.
