Erika Lincoln

Join Erika for a discussion on her newest installation The Singing Condition at the Winnipeg Art Gallery, on Thursday, April 28, from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm. 

Included with Gallery admission

Car horns. Mobile phone rings. Traffic crossing signals. 
The chirps of urban birds sound very different than those of their country cousins.

These sounds facilitate and in some ways control humans as we move and find our way through the city. This led Winnipeg electronic media artist Erika Lincoln to consider what the effects of these communication sounds, that are used solely by humans, have on animals living in our shared environment.
