A kinetic sound sculpture by Robert Squirrell.
Operating as a warning system to mariners, lighthouses transmit signifiers of danger. They act as guides for safe travel. Through the medium of sound, this sculptural work, recontextualises radiophonic broadcasts of the shipping forecast, long wave radio noise and traces of distant orchestral waltz music. A doppler of disembodied sound messages rotate and transmit nostalgic memories, offering an invitation to consider metaphorical relationships to the purpose of a lighthouse.
