Sonic Planetarium: Satellite Pipes is a site-specific variation of Sonic Planetarium at Tufts University as part of TuftsPUBLIC: Wave Farm in Residence and is on view November 2018 to May 2019. [visiting information here]
Seven silver cylinders hang from the Aidekman Art Center’s atrium ceiling and channel audio representing satellites and other orbiting objects which are within radio transmission range of Tufts University, in real time. Each pipe is assigned a category of orbiting object and named after the stars in the constellation Orion.
