Tidings of Great Things

Tidings of Great Things is an interactive video/sound installation that makes explicit the area of contact where unyielding natural force meets human agency. Continuous projected footage of an incoming tide is programmed to respond to the audio levels picked up by a single microphone. Changes in environmental decibel levels create increasingly dramatic tidal events, until the screen is finally overwhelmed. Additionally, the audio input from the single microphone is captured and mixed back into the audio track of the footage, creating a Babel of echoes flowing and ebbing in concert with the waves.
