Migration 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.

Published September 2015 on occasion of the exhibition Migration at Rumpsti Pumsti (Musik), Berlin.
Recorded 2014 at Spike Island, Bristol. Edition of 15 signed and numbered copies plus 5 artist proofs.
