‘Red Ghost’ and ‘Whispering Tree’ for b-side Festival 2016

I created a sensor activated small red ghost that illuminated when anybody walked past the tree it was suspended from. It represented a story that I read that every baby on Portland in the 17th/18th Century was christened in the same red ‘whittle’. Following on from this was a ‘Whispering Tree’…another sensor activated piece that whispered diary extracts when you passed it.

It was difficult to determine where the whispering was coming from, and you had to be very still.
