Avian Signatures is an investigation into the Transformation of sound (from birdsong) into a visual form using photography. Through simple home experimentation with 'found' objects this project has involved designing apparatus for transmitting sound through the air and capturing it on a surface membrane as air resonances. The earliest form of photography i.e. photograms have been used to capture individual patterns from different species of bird found in a local habitat. This work is born of a wish to experience the intricacies of nature at close hand as witness to rarely seen events in the natural world. Images shown: canada goose, kestral, nightingale, robin and teal.
