bees collecting nectar at the flower field.

Sound waves engage one of the human senses and provide information about our surroundings. In nature, sounds are perpetual and dynamic property of all landscapes, generated by geophony (nonbiological) or biophony (biological) sources. Indeed nature’s sounds influence our ability to connect with the natural world. 

 

The project presents patterns of sounds of bees in a green field.

An audio recorder was employed to capture the sounds of bees at a green flower field. The recorded sound was transformed into a digital spectrogram image by utilizing audio software. As a result, the spectrogram is translated into a pattern using the hand-knotted technique.

Bees at the flower field is an abstract hand-knotted carpet. The work addresses how the sounds of nature enhanced people's perception of environmental surroundings. The GPS coordinate indicate the location of the recorded sound.
