Get the Flash Player to see this player.

Delicate paper origami cranes are animated by small motors, creating a shadow animation of birds flying through clouds, accompanied by a soundtrack by Norwegian composer Maja Ratkje. The speed of their flight and intensity of crane recordings are controlled by data that represents their migration journeys. Commissioned by Faster Than Sound, March 2010. MaxMSP programming by Matthew Olden.
