Sound and ceramics installation

Sound travels through the speakers, set under terracotta and porcelain ceramic objects, split into two sets of sound; nighttime ambience, and voices. The children and adult voices play in a loop, whereas the ambient sound content is steered by sensors and changes with the outside weather, playing nighttime sounds from cold wet climates when
the weather outside the gallery is hot, and sounds from hot dry climates when it is cold.
