We Wink, We Wink, Our Voices Blink invites you right inside a unique and sensual voice and light landscape. Rhythmic pulses of sound inspired by the New Forest generate patterns of colour and intensity inside our dangling orbs. When you approach, our orbs sense your movement, and they respond. Your hands come near and they twist, shape and style the sound and light.
The artwork conjures a natural world in which the human voice sings the strange songs of the ancient forest. Your movement casts a spell. You even feel the orbs vibrate and tingle in your hands. Voice, light, touch, and the strange music of the forest wink at each other in the fading twilight.
