In the oak tree grove in front of the Anderson Collection
Part of the exhibition Nina Katchadourian: Curiouser, this outdoor installation investigates the difficulty in translating the elusive sounds created by birds. In sound systems installed in six trees, visitors can hear audio recordings of United Nations translators attempting to vocalize the sounds of six different birds, without having previous familiarity of the bird and only relying on the materials found in birding guidebooks.
The Cantor Arts Center is located at the intersection of Museum Way and Lomita Drive in the heart of the arts district on the Stanford campus. The Cantor faces the Bing Concert Hall across Palm Drive, northwest of The Oval and the Main Quad.
