Migrations

Stephen Cornford has created an installation for numerous factory-second dictaphones which, by subtly transforming their mechanics and audio electronics combines their simple motion, voltage and operative noise into a visual and aural display reminiscent of the massed migrations of birds or insects. While 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. You can see some video here.
