Aquaphoneia @ The Lighthouse
Fantasic For Families
  • Navid Navab

Examining and taking apart sound technology and how we transmit information through speech, Navid Navab & Michael Montanaro’s Aquaphoneia is something like a record player reverse-engineered by a people who can speak underwater. Visitors can speak into a large horn and hear their words ‘transcribed’ by a series of obscure glass instruments into a burbling, underwater tongue. These sounds are then fed through other strange machines: kinetic instruments activated by the drip of liquids, aquasonic devices that seem on the verge of replying in a human language construed entirely from water. In another part of the work, voices can just be heard in the crackling of an unfading globe of fire, like some ancient god's indulgence.  Language meets alchemy in this fantastical deconstruction of the ways we communicate.
