“Pareidolia (/pærɪˈdoʊliə/ parr-i-DOH-lee-ə) is a psychological phenomenon in which the mind responds to a stimulus, usually an image or a sound, by perceiving a familiar pattern where none exists (e.g. in random data).”
This piece consists of four bottles siting on shelves. Two of the bottles transmit sounds being monitored through a built in microphone and two have small speakers inside them playing the sounds transmitted from the two monitoring bottles. Because the sound is being monitored from the inside of a bottle and listened to through a bottle it is extremely abstracted. The act of listening to the bottles takes on the same imaginative, play like experience of listening to sounds though a large sea shell.
