    “When Elephants Fight, It is the Frogs That Suffer-A Sonic Graffiti”

    The installation consists of 16 loudspeakers playing “a symphony of frogs croaking.” The sound archive is made of a) frogs croaking b) human voices imitating frogs croaking c) human voices reciting proverbs d) human voices reading parts of Aristophanes’ play “Frogs”. Both Aristophanes’ “Frogs” and Ben Patterson's earlier work “Pond” have influenced the development and the artistic result of this work.
