KIKK in town25 woodworms
In 25 woodworms, sound artist Zimoun captures the sounds emitted by 25 woodworms encased in a piece of bark. Using a simple device, a microphone placed above the bark, the artist makes the invisible presence of the living creatures audible to the human ear.
The sound produced seems to follow its own swarm logic, but this is just an impression because it is actually random. Only animals like termites and ants follow their own logic; woodworms do not adopt this behaviour. Each one emits a unique sound sequence that is born purely of the moment. In 25 woodworms, some 20 individual sounds reveal themselves to us.
