  Work Details  
  Our source of inspiration was the neck of an early 20th century phonograph speaker, found while foraging through a flea market. We turned it 90 degrees, forming a not a pipe after Magritte. This small sound sculpture was hung in the Museum of Contemporary Art for the exhibition 'Sound in Space'. The sounds emanating from the sculpture were bird and animal calls voiced by David Gulpilil. Visitors were attracted to notice the gentle calls, move their ear to the sculpture and listen to the quiet mimetic sounds.
