Transoceanic Whistle

Dual sound recording, looped

Collaboration with Jessie Lumb
Produced for Unkept, Contemporary Art Tasmania

Through a series of conversations it emerged that neither myself nor Jessie could whistle.

At the same time (Claire in New York and Jessie in Hobart), each of us produced a recording attempting to whistle to the other until we were out of breath.

The two individual recordings were played continuously through speakers positioned at either end of a corridor, joining us despite our distance as fellow failed whistlers.
