The listening room, Camden Arts Centre
This version of The Listening Room is minimal, one microphone and two loudspeakers in the Reading Room of Camden Arts Centre, a relatively small space for this work. The Reading Room is the former entrance to the building, this entrance has been bricked over to create three highly reflective wall surfaces in the room. The room resonance is so pronounced that my usual placement of microphone and speakers would tend to fix on one pitch and stay there - to introduce more of the available freque
The listening room, Ikon Gallery, Birmingham : A gallery installation and an offsite project
The three upper galleries of Ikon house two variants of The Listening Room. Each installation amplifies the sound of a gallery in real time, introducing low-volume feedback, pitches delineated by the architectural characteristics of the space and modulated by the transient nature of people passing through. In between is the central gallery, a space where the sound of the two Listening Rooms actively mixes and merges, allowing the two activated spaces to affect each other - in a very real sen
Applying Hooke's Law to Cancer Detection
In this activity, students will explore Hooke’s Law in small groups at their lab bench. They will collect displacement data for a spring with an unknown spring constant, k, by adding various masses of known weight. After exploring Hooke’s law and answering a series of application questions, students are asked to apply their understanding to explore a tissue of known surface area. Students will then use the necessary relationships to depict a cancerous tumor amidst normal tissue by creating a
Auburn vs. Mississippi State (1957)
"Coach Shug Jordan's finest football machine took the test of a true champion by having to come from behind to defeat a determined Mississippi State team by a score of 15 to 7 before 43,000 in Birmingham's Legion Field. State gained a half-time lead of 7-0 on a beautifully executed 57 yard scoring pass from reserve quarterback, Tom Miller to end Ned Brooks with three minutes left in the first half. The first half was a hard-fought, defensive battle which found both teams using every opportunity
Auburn vs. Chattanooga (1957)
"A "Band Day" crowd of 17,000 saw Auburn's highpowered Tigers win its second straight game of the season, crushing a fairly strong Chattanooga Moccasin team 40-7. Coach Shug Jordan used a total of 43 players as the Tigers scored in every quarter while using various means of racking up the six touchdowns against the Tennesseans. Auburn's first unit, which played about a third of the game, scored twice, the second unit tallied twice and a combination of third and fourth units added two TD's. Six d
Auburn vs. Alabama (1957)
"Birmingham's Legion Field was left with strains of "War Eagle," after Coach Shug Jordan's Auburn Tigers rolled over the Alabama Crimson Tide 40-0 before 44,000 shivering football fans. This was the day the Plainsmen won the National Football Championship, the first Southeastern Conference championship, and for the first time since 1913, went undefeated and untied. Auburn, with a tremendous first half, matched the No. 1 defense in the nation with a versatile offense for its 14th consecutive vict
Auburn vs. Birmingham Southern (1938)
"With the "War Eagle" Ringing to the skies, the Tigers opened the season with a night game against Southern. Their offense was sluggish and only five or six plays were used, but one of them was "Wild Bull" Haynsworth's straight cut off tackle, with which he averaged more than ten yards per try." (Description from 1939 Glomerata)
Auburn vs. Villanova (1939)
"The Wildcats of Villanova, overpowering favorites, were encountered in Birmingham to provide the most stirring game of the season. With McGowen setting the pace, the Tigers held a 10-7 lead going into the closing minutes of the game, then Villanova worked the pigskin down to the 1-yard stripe with a devastating offense, but their offensive might was shattered by a gallant Auburn line that rose to the heights on four successive downs and hurled the Villanovans back. The Plainsmen gave the Wildca
