Organic sound installation, a sort of ivy made of wires and headphones, white as the wall to which it clings and covers from one end to the other. From the headphones emerges an almost inaudible sound, which we usually only hear when there is total silence: the singing of many different species of crickets. At regular intervals, the crickets’ singing is interrupted by the sound of an air raid attack alarm that gets activated in each French city all the first Wednesdays of the month, at midday.
