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.
