Navigating the Bay
San Francisco Art institute Courtyard
Navigating the Bay is a sound and projection installation that explores the complex systems of humans, animals and machines that rely and reside on the San Francisco Bay. A response to the 2007 Cosco Busan Oil Spill that was partly the fault of malfunctioning radar, the installation uses sound, projection, sensors, micro controllers and Max/MSP. The piece explores the progression of navigational technologies, channeling current sounds of the bay through historic San Francisco fog horn patterns.
The piece is made up of four sound rhizomes that play when activated. The Score above describes the sound patterns in more detail.
