"Host" is an installation developed during a residency at the ‘SymbioticA’ Bio-Art and Technology Laboratory (University of Western Australia) in which an audience of several hundred live Crickets attend a lecture concerning the sex life of insects. The lecture, is manifest as two wall sized DVD images projected through an array of insect cages. One DVD portrays a highly pixilated image of the lecturers face and has a sound track recorded directly from the speakers voice. The second soundtrack was recorded via electrodes connected directly to the aural nerve of a Cricket as it listened to the sex lecture . The recorded signal was then processed via an oscilloscope to give both a visual and sonic display of the insects nervous activity. If nothing else, this installation is ample proof that our own sex lives are much less interesting than we suppose!!!
