The work is made in collaboration with my father, who is a mathematician recently retired from the university and now living in a cabin in the mountains in rural Norway. One of his activities there is bird watching. During a winter he has registered the different activities in his feeding tree, such as temperature, type of birds, number of birds, weather, duration, amount of food, resulting in a graph summarizing all life surrounding the tree.
I have translated the data into different materials, using different methods.
The sound composition is made in collaboration with the artist Marcellvs L.
