Hybrid Solitary … Semi-Social Quintet … on Cosmic Webs …

This is a work by Tomas Saraceno, one of my favorite artists. One of his recent installations consists of spiders and their webs in suspended glass boxes. Part of the goal of his project is to create a “sound installation which renders spiderwebs into musical instruments through the use of ultra low frequencies in order to probe.” Conceptually this reminds me a lot of the work of Maximilian Lawrence (visiting artist), whose work with bees also related to display and sound. Below is a link to the work, a video that includes the translated sounds, and an interview with Saraceno.
