"In From Here to Ear, the artist creates a sound environment featuring 40 zebra finches, taut harpsichord strings, wire coat hangers and an amplification system. With these materials, Boursier-Mougenot transforms the gallery into a customized aviary where audience members affect the activity of the birds, which in turn create a variety of sounds by interacting with the harpsichord strings and hangers."
