Unexpected Biomimicry: Natural Car Alarm
An artist playfully explores connections between technology and nature.
Nina Katchadourian’s art piece, Natural Car Alarms, is a serendipitous reminder of the ways in which technology and nature often relate. One day, while hiking in a jungle, the artist heard what she thought to be a car alarm, but was in actuality a bird. Surprised by the connection, she decided to hack a set of real car alarms to play back their siren in song. These cars were parked around Long Island City, New York, chirping and crying into the city on timed intervals.
