Otto’s Ghost is a sound installation made up of a chorus of miniature autonomous singing robots that will occupy trees in the small park at McGee and Elm. Visit the park to hear these synthetic life forms react to the environment by consuming sunlight and emitting chirps, squeaks, and buzzes. Each unit is made of solar cells and electronics originally inspired by the bio-physics of squid nerve cells.
