NotesMigration is a kinetic sound installation for numerous factory-second dictaphones. The mechanics and audio electronics of these machines have been subtly transformed, 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.
