Dislocated Agency: Methods for Web-Based Sound Generation
Edited by Jason Bernagozzi
This article is based on the process used to create an artwork called Co•–st•–l W•–ve Tr•–nsl•–tor, which translates wave data collected from weather buoys located in the Indian and Pacific Oceans, into sound. The project aimed to offer a meditation on the unseen, intermediary space between borders: the space where countless traverse, the space that continues to rise. It grapples with issues related to Australian coastlines: climate change-related sea-level rise and water-based immigration. Drawing on oceanic communication and Morse code, the work creates a sensory proposition of the distress signals tied to the ocean.
