Marco Barotti (IT)

The Woodpecker

Marco Barotti’s small mechanical woodpeckers perch in all possible and impossible places in the city, on street signs or lamp posts. They record electromagnetic radiations in their urban environs and replay them by tapping with their beaks. This performance at the intersection between audible and visual art renders the city’s unseen waves visible and audible.

A La Strada-coproduction of the international streetart-network IN SITU.
