This work has a direct connection to an established surveillance system placed along side the English Channel in the 1930’s. Large concrete “ears” would register the noise of incoming fighter aircrafts and from this focus and reflection of the sound of the engine it was possible to measure how long it would take before the air craft would reach the coast. The art work consist of a number of spatial and analogous elements in different materials that resembles the concave shapes of this surveillance system, but rather than preparing for animosity, they measure nothing. They observe the surroundings as a kind of monitoring tool but without accumulating data.
