An installation for numerous factory-second dictaphones.
By subtly transforming their mechanics and audio
electronics their simple motion, voltage and operative
noise are combined into a visual and aural display
reminiscent of the massed migrations of birds or insects.

Obliquely referencing the appropriation of the term
'Migration' as a data process the work reflects on the
global movement of consumer electronics as they pass
from production to pollution in the ever accelerating life
cycles between generations of technology.
