The Currency of Birdsong

Description

As part of Floating Land 2013, the Cooroora Institute present a creative investigation of the currency of birdsong through talks, workshops, demonstrations, activities, concert, artistic research, exhibition, and catalogue. What if we used wild birdsong as an indicator of success and status? Instead of asking about jobs or money, we might ask of any process: “yes, but does it produce birdsong?” The currency of birdsong would be seasonal, diverse, and biogeographic; bird habitats would be more important than banks; value would be tied to the ritual of everyday’s dawning and twilight; outside life connected to local places.
